THE PROJECT REPORT

Abstract

The goal of this project is examining Computer Graphics, Games and Interactive Technologies Research in Turkey. We examined universities and game companies as well as we contacted each organization and tried to document their activities. We created a report with our findings and also created an interactive map by using Google maps.

1. Introduction

Nowadays, with the development of the computer and interactive technology, the new research areas and job opportunities have appeared. This technological development also leads to advance the new pleasure activities such as playing computer games and mobile games which are related to computer graphics and interactive technologies. Therefore this increased interest in game technologies created the game industry which is one of the essential research areas of this project with the university courses that is the other research topic. In this project our goal is to examine university courses which are related to computer game graphics and finding out game companies in Turkey. After the research we listed the information and locations of the companies and universities. Finally, by looking at these statistics we created an interactive map by Google Maps. This platform helped people to reach easily the information about game producers and university courses that related to computer games and technologies.

Figure 1. GoogleMaps

2. Results and Discussion

In the process of the project we moved according to our plan. Each group member scanned the universities of one or two region and at the end we gather all the information that we have found. In the subsequent route to scan game companies, first we examine all the companies in Turkey and after we focused on the companies which in Istanbul and Ankara. We also created a blog on the internet to collect and organize all the information that we have found.

According to our findings, most of the companies are located in Istanbul and Ankara. Then it is followed by Izmir and Eskisehir. In addition, most of the universities which have game graphic courses are also located in Istanbul and Ankara.

3. Conclusion

The companies and university courses which are related to our project are listed below. In total we have found 27 game companies/developers and 20 universities/courses in Turkey.

A. 1.5. Poster Preparation

To prepare a poster that contains details of the project.

A. 1.6. Presentation

We will present our project with a presentation.

A. 2. Updated Plan

Up until now we have done what was written in our proposal. Generally we followed the plan and moved according to the time chart. In the first four week we searched all the universities in Turkey. We divided all the universities to four regions and each group member examined one part of the Turkey. In the next four week game companies and developers have scanned. However we delayed one week in this part by due to group members’ exams and specific work. In the eighth and ninth week we collected and organized all the information. We also created a blog and keep our results in there.

A. 3. Realized Tasks 

Table 1. Time Plan

A. 4. Explanations and Conclusions

The planned tasks completed as we expected before.
