The division seeks to disseminate modern technologies (ground laser, aerial laser, radar, and hyperspectral)

The Division also carries out scientific cooperation with universities in registering for master’s and doctoral degrees

We seek to direct scientific theses and research to be applied research. We also seek to encourage international publishing and joint international publishing. We also seek to support and develop human resources and develop infrastructure (laboratories and equipment).

The Division also implements many courses through the Training Division for university students

The Division also carries out training courses in any of its fields. What is new is that the Division is opening scientific, research and applied communication and cooperation with various bodies, whether governmental represented in the various governorates or the public or private business sector. This and the Division

The division can provide any advice or advice to any party that requests it

The Division participates in research grants and capacity building grants provided to the Authority

- The Division also seeks to work on the applications of the various axes in the Egypt Plan (especially the environment and agriculture), then energy, water, and tourism - and to participate with the original specialists in these fields.


That the Aerial Photography and Aviation Division of the Authority be a distinguished center and a house of expertise in producing maps, whether detailed or thematic maps, from various sources such as aerial photography, single or stereoscopic satellite visuals, or ground surveying, and disseminating modern technologies (Terrestrial laser, airborne laser, radar, and hyperspectral).


Producing maps, whether detailed or thematic maps, using the latest technologies such as laser, hyperspectral, radar images, aerial photography, single or three-dimensional satellite visuals, or land surveying to serve sustainable development.
