First Turkish settled territory in the late 11th century[edit]

The Central Anatolia was the first Turkik settled territory in the 11th century. For the next 300 years Central Anatolia was the only territory with a Turkish majority in Asia Minor Peninsula. Step by step, the surrounding territories where invaded and settled by Turkish colonists. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.105.123.228 (talk) 23:38, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

Major changes/corrections[edit]

Maps[edit]

Right now, these maps are used in the article:

These maps are quite simply incorrect; the borders of the geographical regions of Turkey do not overlap with the borders of the administrative provinces.

This is the correct map of the geographical Central Anatolia Region:

Provinces in the Central Anatolia Region[edit]

Since the borders do not overlap, there can be no clear-cut list of provinces in the Central Anatolia Region.

Right now, this list is featured in the article:

This list is also incorrect.

If we want to list the provinces in the Central Anatolia Region, we will need at least two, but preferable three categorizies:

  1. Provinces that are entirely in the Central Anatolia Region.
  2. Provinces that are mostly in the Central Anatolia Region.
  3. Provinces that have their central district in the Central Anatolia Region, but most of their area in other regions:
  4. Provinces that are partially in the Central Anatolia Region.

According to this map, which shows both geographical and provincial borders, the correct list should be as follows:

Provinces in the Central Anatolia Region

Provinces that are entirely in the Central Anatolia Region:

Provinces that are mostly in the Central Anatolia Region:

Provinces that have their central district in the Central Anatolia Region, but most of their area in other regions:

Provinces that are partially in the Central Anatolia Region:

Population[edit]

Since the geographical borders are imprecise (they don't overlap with district borders either), there is no convenient way to calculate the population of the geographical Central Anatolia Region, or other geographical regions of Turkey for that matter. Any figure you see on the Internet in this regard is, at best, imprecise guesswork. I propose that we rank geographical regions among themselves and leave it at that. --Mttll (talk) 11:20, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
