Recent developments in technology such as Geographic Information System (GIS) and its multimediabased applications can be very useful tools when used to research and document historical structures. This article presents a case study, which demonstrates how the research of two Ottoman fortresses from the 17th century can be documented and organised using a GIS based multimedia application. As one of the essential requirements of GIS is accurate spatial data, a primary goal of this project was to create a complete and accurate set of maps for the two Ottoman fortresses of "Seddülbahir" and "Kumkale" and their environs. This article demonstrates how a multimedia supported GIS can assist in the organisation of geographically oriented data and provides an efficient method of documenting historical structures.
