Who Are We ?

WWDSE was established by government proclamation in 1998 G.C to enhance the effort being made in realizing the potential use of the water resources of the country to improve the socioeconomic development of the society...


Topography Surveying Service


Topography surveying is one of the most important working units in WWDSE that produce maps for all water related projects based on Satellite Imagery, Arial Photograph, EMA (Ethiopian Mapping Agency) Base Map and Ground Surveying undertaken.

Topography Surveys made to determine the configuration of points (Places) on the earth's surface by measuring horizontal distances, differences in elevation and directions. Basically topography surveying is used for producing topographic maps and constructing topographic (cross- sectional) Profiles. these topographic maps give the locations of places (observable features) and it serve as base maps

Uses of Topographic Maps

Topographic maps are used by a variety of professions from engineers, architects, foresters, geologists, etc

The most common use of topographic maps is in planning stages of projects to help design the layout and location of buildings, roads, dams, pipelines, landscapes, fire control routes, trails, etc
