Résumé
This work is divided in two parts : the first one involves a description of a water resource system through some socio-economic, agricultural and water indicators. It gives to the decision-maker the possibility to have a clear idea about the actual situation by showing different maps of all Governorates in Egypt. Each map represents a specific indicator. This is done by using a GIS interface. The second part is a tool that uses the multi-criteria analysis to develop a single index based on the previous indicators to determine the most suitable projects sites, for example for an irrigation system. For this index, the decision-maker will have just to pick up from the list of the previous indicators some of them, and then give to each one a weight. The program will apply all the normalisation rules and will run all the necessary computations to plot a new map with the new index
