In this study, remote sensing and geographic information system (GIS) integration were used in order to analyse land cover of Gökceada Island by using Landsat 7 ETM data with slope and aspect data. Digital image processing techniques were conducted for the processes of image enhancement, manipulation, registration and classification for land cover analysis. Digital Elevation Model of the island were performed by digitising 1/25000 scaled standart topographic map. Slope and aspect map were

Gokceada Island has been developing rapidly over the last decade, successful planning will require reliable information about land use/cover distribution. This study illustrates that integration of remotely sensed data and GIS techniques are effective in order to provide such information.
