The General Egyptian Survey Authority was established in 1898 under the name of the Public Survey Authority, and the purpose of its establishment at the time was to cover the land of Egypt with topographic maps and to create maps and ownership books for agricultural lands located within the reins and for properties built within cities with the aim of collecting real estate taxes on them and establishing records of those assigned to them. In 1971, the authority was transformed into a public authority affiliated with the Ministry of Irrigation, and its tasks were determined by several republican decisions, the latest of which was Republican Decree No. 328 of 1983. Its system of supervising survey work carried out by others was also determined by Republican Decree No. 298 of 1984, then it turned into an economic authority in 2001. During its long life, the authority has gone through many stages during which the scope of its work expanded and technical methods developed to keep pace with the global development in this field, and recently made great achievements in the field of digital transformation, which provides the geographic information infrastructure necessary for all economic activities in particular and development in general within the framework of the state's strategy Related to building e-government and within the framework of the global trend in the information age.
