Abstract EN

This study explores the experience of implementing digital maps through utilizing Google maps and Geodatabase technologies to create an interactive digital tourist map for the first time for Matrouh Governorate which is one of Egypt’s interesting destinations.

This digital map, as expected may give more visitors the ability to explore deeply the area and make their visit more enjoyable.

Data were collected through official documents and reports about the area of study, then mapping technology was used to digitize the data.

The results were presented through a main digital map that illustrates the natural and cultural attractions as well as other tourism sites and services across the Governorate as an initiative from the researchers to promote tourism in Matrouh within national and global scale.
