ABSTRACT Satellit images, Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographic Information System (GIS) are perfect tools for geo-inviromental applications in science and engineering. While the egyption ministry of electricity is planning to establish a new electrical station at Nuweiba city in Egypt, to cover the increasing demand on electricity in this area. In this paper an integrated approach using satellite data and GIS techniques in conjunction with ARC / GIS program is used to study some issues related to the environment surrounding the project and get its impact. land use map with scale 1:100,000 for the main geo-environmental features and landforms of study area is produced by using ArcMap program. The produced map taks consideration of land use changes within 1984, 2000 and 2007. Nuweiba city, the Gulf of Aqaba has the potentials to be developed and need to support such developments by establishing the essential services projects such as the proposed electrical power station. Remote Sensing and GIS are the best tools of acquiring and analysis the basic information particularly on the environmental applications.
