Course Description

Most Water Resources’ project involve the use of Geographical Information Systems (GIS), Such projects require extensive knowledge and the use and GIS for spatial manipulation of natural resources while ensuring effective Water resources Manipulation. Although the modelling of water resources bases on GIS is rather complex and yet a recent approach compared to conceptual methods, it enables detailed representation of several hydrological processes such as flows over the surface and underground.


The course is intended to provide the student with:

  • Use of GIS for Hydrological and Hydraulics representation
  • Use of GIS for surface and subsurface modelling
  • Use of GIS for spatial representation of surface and subsurface water resources
