Cell phones and mobile devices have been an integral part of life over the past 30 years. In parallel with the intensity of use of mobile phones, the number of base stations has also increased. The increasing number of base stations has caused an intensity of electromagnetic pollution in the GSM band. The issue of electromagnetic pollution has become increasingly remarkable due to the claims that it can cause diseases and scientific studies carried out in this field. The number and variety of studies carried out in the last 30 years in this regard has also increased. Base stations are established with various features. While some kinds of base stations use radial antenna type, some of them use directional antennas. Depending on the region where it is established, the cell types it uses may also differ. Therefore, multiple measurements are required to analyse the impact of a base station. However, it is practically not possible to make an infinite number of measurements. Within the scope of this study, it is aimed to refine and clarify the electromagnetic pollution maps by using artificial intelligence methods. As a result of the studies carried out in this area, electromagnetic pollution maps have become much more detailed.

Key words: Electromagnetic pollution, GSM, base station.
