One of the important indicators of developed societies, protect their history and transport them for future generations. Therefore, sustainable monitoring and determination present situations of the historical buildings are important for protection of them. Knowledge and awareness of these structures in terms of absolute positional and dimensional information acquisition, evaluation and analysis associated with geomatic engineering. In this context, it is aimed to monitor the existing structural deformations of barrack located in Davutpasa Campus at Yildiz Technical University, for two hundred years, using modern geodetic techniques. In this study, geodetic network, has fixed and dynamic points, established to monitor horizontal and vertical deformations occurred in the southern-east facade of barrack. Mentioned network consists of 5 reference points and 10 traverse points. Six of polygons inside of the structure and the remaining 4 polygons are out of it. The structure has 54 object points, 28 of them are based inside the structure and the remaining 26 object point of them out of it. These points are based in a form of on the wall to determine the deviations from vertical plane and also the points in a form of a pair of points are based on the wall with same vertical direction. Since the date of June 2011, the structure measured for three periods by terrestrial and satellite observation techniques. The displacements observed during three periods of measurement. Horizontal positions of 5 fixed points are measured by satellite observation techniques. Also terrestrial measurements were made depending on 5 fixed points as mentioned above to determine the 10 polygon point's horizontal position. Horizontal positions of the object points are measured by distance/angle surveying technique and calculate their coordinates with resection method depend on polygons. Vertical displacement of 15 fixed points measured by precise geometric levelling method and horizontal displacement of 54 object points measured by precise trigonometric method. In this study, design of geodetic control network, measurements, evaluation and analysis first results are given.
