Contactless transaction map of Turkey

My colleague Tuncay Şahin made an excellent job and processed the full contactless payment transaction data in Turkey between March and August 2016 and displayed on a video map.

Below map  displays the transaction amount sums populated from actual live Visa and MasterCard contactless transactions taking place in Turkey from March 1 to August 31, 2016.

Seems like contactless transactions tend to appear on city centers and touristical coast line of Turkey. Western half of Turkey generate most of the transactions but even the border towns near Iraq and Iran host contactless transactions.

Contactless transactions below 50 TL are processed without CVM, while over 50 TL require an online PIN entry via PIN Pad of the POS terminal.
