Our "Mapping Museum", which was established on May 2, 1971 as a complex inside General Directorate of Mapping - GDM (Cebeci/Ankara), is a 2nd class military museum. The museum was restored in 2003. During the restoration, the museum was re-designed in three separate aisles where works of some famous painters, both military and civilian, historical maps and surveying instruments were exhibited. Additionally, a corner was devoted to the memory of Lieutenant General Mehmet Sevki Ölçer, the founder of General Directorate of Mapping. The pictures below depict these aisles.
