This data category requires a high level national map. To satisfy this category, the following minimum criteria must be met:

  • Scale of 1:250,000 (1 cm = 2.5km).
  • Markings of national roads
  • National borders
  • Marking of streams, rivers, lakes, mountains.
  • Updated at least once a year.

Data Location


Map for Egypt governorates, villages and districts. Historic maps are also available. All maps are available for purchause upon request to the dedicated Authority. [No changes from 2013]

Final reviewer: I am unable to respond to most of the questions in a more precise way since the website is down at the time of review (28 November 2014). Yet, if the data is available for purchase, then the data exists (thus, 'unsure' -> 'yes'), is not available for free (thus, 'unsure' -> 'no') and is not openly licensed (thus, 'unsure' -> 'no').
