In municipalities, the areas that Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are used, the benefits gained by using GIS, the barriers for GIS adoption, success and failure factors for GIS implementations are the main issues to be considered for GIS diffusion. In this context, firstly the diffusion of GIS within Istanbul municipalities was researched and secondly the readiness of the infrastructure of Istanbul municipalities for GIS applications was examined in this study. Moreover, success and failure factors related to the implementation of GIS were analyzed for the Istanbul municipalities that are using GIS.
