Résumé
New technologies and information systems play an important role in water resources management. This is particularly true when dealing with complicated and interacting water systems, such as irrigation and drainage networks. The irrigation and drainage networks in the Nile Delta region, is an example that reflects the complexity and interaction of water systems. In such complexity, the optimum and most effective solution is the use of the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) as a tool for management and decision support. The main target of this study was to show the importance of using (GIS) in such cases, and to design a basic and integrated (GIS), that is applicable to the Delta conditions. In this study, a (GIS) for the Delta region was developed using a software package for (GIS) design and manipulation. The commercial name of this package is known as MapInfo. The developed system showed that (GIS) is a very powerful tool for performing studies related to complicated surface water networks. It also showed flexibility in upgrading and maintenance for several future applications.

Mots Clés : Information systems, GIS, Irrigation, Drainage, The Nile delta
