Traditional methods of surveying and navigation are tedious observation techniques for deriving positional and directional information. Various field conditions, seasonal variation and many unavoidable circumstances always bias the traditional field approach.
There is great advancement in electronic systems, telecommunication, and space science and technology. The fields of surveying and navigation are greatly benefited through the global navigation satellite system (GNSS), including global positioning systems (GPS) and electronic devices. The GNSS systems provide critical positioning capabilities to military, civil, and commercial users around the world.
Many of the critical situations in surveying and navigation are now easily and precisely solved in short time.
Alexandria is the second largest city and a major economic centre in Egypt, extending about 32 km (20 mi) along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea in the north central part of the country. Its low elevation on the Nile delta makes it highly vulnerable to rising sea levels. Alexandria is Egypt's largest seaport, serving approximately 80% of Egypt's imports and exports. It is an important industrial center because of its natural gas and oil pipelines from Suez. Alexandria is also an important tourist destination.
