Geographical Information System (GIS) Unit
The basic task of this unit is to construct the Geographic Information System (GIS) for the water map of Egypt. The map requires a great deal of continuous efforts in
collecting, organizing and processing related information, including maps of different scales and backgrounds and the spatial data of the irrigation system and drainage systems,
and different types of pump stations and barrages.
Water Studies and Research Complex in Toshka
The research complex in Toshka located in south of Egypt, and covers an area of 125
acres, of which about 115 acres for the experimental farm to irrigate through
five modern irrigation systems (sprinkler, surface bubbler, subsurface drip,
leakage and pivot) as shown in figure 4. This special research unit had been
established to provide technical solutions to problems raised during the
development process in new reclaimed areas with special circumstances.
Furthermore, to propose indicators for measuring performance progress of
irrigation, drainage and ecology
