    CULTNAT Issues Cairo Archaeological Atlas

    Date published: 31 January 2016

    The Center for Documentation of Cultural and Natural Heritage (CULTNAT) has issued "Cairo Atlas", in line with the joint cooperation between the Center and the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA) for documenting archaeological sites nationwide.

    The publication is part of Atlases series that have been issued and released over the past years through the archeological Geographical Information System (GIS) project, aiming to document archaeological sites using the latest scientific and technological methods. The series covered most of Egyptís governorates including Luxor, Aswan, Assiut, Fayoum, Beni Suef, the Canalís three cities, North and South Sinai, and many other governorates. The releases are part of an ambitious plan that CULTNAT seeks to implement nationwide in cooperation with the SCA.

    The Atlas is an archaeological reference through which all archaeological sites have been documented on a digital map for each governorate at different administrative levels (archaeological area Ėadministrative center - archaeological inspection center) using GIS techniques. It entails site data, ownership and other data of interest to researchers and specialists in the field of archeology.

    With its headquarters in Cairo, CULTNAT is affiliated with Bibliotheca Alexandrina (BA) and is supported by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT). It seeks to apply latest technology in documenting Egyptian tangible and intangible cultural heritage and natural heritage, which covers information on Egyptís natural and protected areas. CULTNAT has contributed to documenting and disseminating information on the Egyptian heritage.
