Magdy Mahmoud, Samir Mahmud Adam Abdalla

Abstract


The purpose of this paper  is showing, how Geographical  Information Systems (GIS ) can be used to support infrastructure  planners and analyst  on water and petroleum demand of a local area in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). The first part of this work  discusses the issue of analysis, design and creating  the geodatabase system  of KSA land and infrastructure  using Stylus Studio XML editor, describing the components of the whole system of Subareas in Saudi  Arabia  affecting local infrastructure  planning and analyzing which include of specific  area and facilities management. The second part defines the creation of the GIS  application of the discussed field having the GIS  functions of the infrastructure discusses the  geodatabase of the application of GIS  In infrastructure   in Saudi Arabia districts. The third part defines the  results of the statistics analysis populations  in the Subareas, specify the relation between water resources and the elevations of subareas, the data of the layers of roads, railroads existing in Saudi Arabia  specially in the eastern area where most petroleum s wells are found.

Using Google earth to show the elevation of the subareas and the relation with the water resources. Three groups of GIS  forms was produced  they are the geodatabase of the Saudi Arabia (area, subareas and main cities) ,water resources  layers (water  in land , water  area and land cover ) , roads, railroads  and elevations layers. The main contribution in the paper, discussed the infrastructure and the  results of the statistics analysis populations  in the subareas, specify the relation between water resources and the elevations of subareas of the data layers of roads, railroads existing in Saudi Arabia, especially in the eastern area where most petroleum's wells are found production and exploration of  petroleum including the geodatabase of wells of petroleum distributed in Saudi Arabia  finding the locations using Google earth map, satellites to locate the areas of producing petroleum.
