Abstract. Development movements bring along population movements. Investments in Istanbul make the city of Istanbul even more attractive. With the increasing population, the need for water is increasing day by day. Construction of the 3rd Istanbul Airport within the borders of Terkos Basin, which is one of the important drinking water resources of Istanbul, has caused land use changes in the basin. Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing techniques have been used to examine this change. The data obtained through Remote Sensing can be easily analyzed in GIS environment.

In this study, Landsat 8 satellite images of the years 2013, 2015 and 2020 were preferred in the examination of the temporal change of land use of the Terkos Basin. The satellite images obtained were classified using the controlled classification technique in the Envi program. Satellite images classified for the creation and analysis of land use maps have been transferred to the ArcGIS program. The changes in the classes determined according to the obtained results were examined, and the changes in question were revealed by spatial analysis. Suggestions have been made for the protection of the Terkos drinking water basin and ecosystem, which is extremely important for Istanbul.
