Search Syntax


There are some kind of rules(syntax) to find what you are searching in query pages. This page gives guides how to search in a query page.



Search for exactly matched ones

Searches, only the typed expression/selected from the combobox list.

  • For example: To find the local authority, whose name is exactly Ali Yilmaz

 Ali Yılmaz


Search in Content

  • Seaches data that starts with the typed expression to the search bar.

    For example: Name / surname of the local authority: Ali Yılmaz, Ali Yıldır, Ali Yılgor whcih all include Ali

 Ali Yıl


  • + (Plus) or using "(Quotation) in the search for the expressions; order and its positioning in the target data field is ignored.


    • For example: to get the results : Name / surname Ali Yilmaz, Ali Doğan, Mehmetali Akyılmaz just type:
