Yaşar Selman Gültekin, from Düzce University Faculty of Forestry Department of Landscape Architecture, received a grant to participate in the Conference “Culture in Urban Space Urban Form, Cultural Landscapes, Life in the City”, held between 3-7 February 2020 in Malmö, Sweden.

Paper presented: A Spatial Statistical Analysis of Post-Earthquake Changes in Mass Housing in Düzce, Turkey.

Abstract:

This study used Average Center, Weighted Average Center, and Standard Deviation Ellipse, which are the most common tools in the application of Spatial Statistical Analysis with the help of Geographical Information Systems (GIS), to assess changes in mass housing in the city of Düzce, Turkey. The spatial distribution of mass housing between the years of 1999-2019 was created with maps at 10-year intervals. The earthquakes of 17 August and 12 November 1999 were among the biggest earthquake disasters of the century and caused great damage in Düzce. At the same time, the earthquake led to the reshaping of Düzce’s settlement system. The spatial spread and direction of movement of mass housing settlements in Düzce in the 20 years following the earthquake have been analyzed, and suggestions have been made about the future of urban planning.

Yaşar Selman Gültekin considered that the conference was successful:

I had a great opportunity to meet new researchers in the conference.”

After this conference I’m planning to study about socioeconomic dimensions of mass housing in Turkey.”
