Spatial based information systems are simple to use systems which facilitate localgovernment and municipality’s management and organizational functions all over the world.Local authorities, municipalities and private institutions are in need of address andnumerating information to provide a quality service for the people in the urban environment.Today, some complex organizational and planning problems are appearing for addressinformation design because the urban information required is spread over several, differingurban areas. Using digital photogrammetric maps as base maps, it is considered spatial basedaddress information systems can cope with all address and numerating problems for localgovernment.Video cameras can be used effectively at the data collecting stage which is one of the basiccomponents of information systems along with an updating process that must be sound,speedy and reliable. In this study, a pilot area in the Kavaklıdere district / Kennedy Avenue ofthe province of Ankara was selected as a case study site. First, the importance of spatial basedinformation systems is mentioned. Then some technical details and field experience regardingthe use of video cameras are dealt with. Next, data collection techniques, such as videocameras, are considered for the management of spatial based address information systems inmaking correct, sound address and numerating planning in urban areas.
