The Survey Research Institute (SRI) was established in 1975, as one of twelve research institutes under the umbrella of the National Water Research Center (NWRC), Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation (MWRI). The SRI aims to forward research concerning the modern techniques in surveying work with the objective of developing and applying all modern aspects of geodesy, photogrammetry, remote sensing, and geographic information systems. The SRI staff is a well-qualified multi-disciplinary research team, capable of scientifically handling development problems with sufficient practical experience. The structure of the institute is flexible enough to generate integrated groups, which technical studies may require.
SRI is working on the study “Shoreline Management Plan for Red Sea Coastal Areas” with Coastal Research Institute (CoRI), Water Resources Research Institute (WRRI), and Environment and Climate Change Research Institute (ECRI) and SRI has completed the objectives of the project in the first phase (Suez-Hurghada), and 50% of the second phase (Hurghada-Marsa Alam).
The Third Technical Report for the study “ Constructing and Updating the Marble Gauges Along the Main Drains” is reviewed, approved, and published. The study is a joined work between the Survey Research Institute, Coastal Protection Public Authority, and Survey Public Authority.
