Gediz Delta is place of empties itself into the sea of Gediz River. It’s one of the important wetland of Turkey which under the protection of Ramsar Convention. It has lots of lagoones, salt marshes, freshwater marshes, large saltpans and also ornitotourism place “Kuş Cenneti”.

In addition İzmir city urbanization pressure has been threated the area where is 44 km far form city center. Thus It’s vital important to determination of landuse decisions and planning.In this study has been evaluated of Gediz Delta landuse decisions by remote sensing techniques. During the study, research area and its surrounds has been searched for natural, cultural and agricultural structure. In addition, to obtain natural structure data’s has been used Landsat 7 ETM satellite image analyses techniques and geographical information systems. Corine (Coordination of Information on Environment) standarts, which European Environmental Agency standarts for landuse situation, have been used as landuse standarts. In this study landuse decisions have been determinated. It can base on planning process.
