The CAPMAS (Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics) is the national authority responsible for collecting, curating and releasing the country's data on demographics, wages, agriculture, tourism, etc. The website and the data are available in Arabic and English.
Majority of are in PDF format, but some others are in XLS. There are also some broken links on the website.
Final reviewer: The majority of information is available as PDF embedded in a flash reader. The data overall is available in a non-readable format and is not available in bulk. Yet these criteria were marked as 'unsure' since one can filter and download quite some data through the CensusInfo database, incl. in a machine-readable format.
Regarding the timeliness of data, it is marked as outdated: http://www.censusinfo.capmas.gov.eg/DivInfo/ and http://www.censusinfo.capmas.gov.eg/DivInfo/DIWizard/DIWizardHome.aspx are the CAPMAS database; they seem to provided data from either 1980 or 2012 (unclear). Indeed, some summary numbers are provided for 2014 (e.g., http://www.capmas.gov.eg/Pepo/lab_e.pdf). Lastly, it is unknown what the release mechanism is and how often the data is updated.
QA reviewer comment - different data can be downloaded in XLS and in bulk, as seen in the link here- http://www.capmas.gov.eg/Pages/IndicatorsPage.aspx?Ind_id=1104
Data however, is not timely updated.
The Egyptian financial year starts in the beginning of July each year, thus this is the budget for the period between 1 July 2014 and 30 June 2015. The budget is available in a PDF format.
All legislation are published as bulletin the Official Gazette which can be found at official administrative prosecution website. The data format is PDF. Last updated three months ago.
Reviewer's note - The site mentions that all rights are reserved to the Administrative Prosecution Authority.
The Egyptian Meteorological Authority publishes temperature readings for Egypt main cities. [http://ema.gov.eg/] It also published forecasts of temperature, humidity and wind speed for the upcoming 4 (not 5) days. [http://ema.gov.eg/pdf/4df.png]
They do not publish precipitation on the same website, but humidity instead, which I think is fine as rain is rare in most of Egypt, and precipitation is not really useful to citizens most of the time. Nevertheless, the precipitation forecast can be found on NWP website which belongs to the same authority. [http://nwp.gov.eg/index.php/wrf/preciptation]
Historical Data was not found on the website, however, it temperature, humidity and windspeed charts are found as part of the Pollution Reports published by NWP. [http://nwp.gov.eg/index.php/reports-enviromental]. It worth mentioning that this data is not available in reports since October 2014, thus we marked the dataset as not provided on a timely and up to date basis.
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').
Land ownerships are registered by the Egyptian Survey Authority (www.esa.gov.eg), however, they do not make such data available to the public. It is not available online, and according to its law (http://bit.ly/1hNXtGG) and the forms submitted (http://bit.ly/1iemT0b) only owner of a land or his legal representatives can get the ownership documents of the land. We were not able to find any means for the public to request lists of lands and their owners.
P.S. The website (www.esa.gov.eg) is down, and we used the cached version by Google for our research.
We found this site but it has no recent data, just old reports http://www.eeaa.gov.eg/arabic/main/env_water.asp
And the water section of new site of the ministry is still under construction http://www.eeaa.gov.eg:8080/en-us/topics/water/freshwater.aspx
The website etenders.gov.eg is meant to aggregate all tenders and awards of the Egyptian national government. It divides tenders into ongoing, submitted and awarded ones. The section for the ongoing ones seems to be up to date with tenders' names, description and status. The submitted and awarded section have the latest tenders from 2009 and 2010 respectively. For the awarded tenders it doesn't list the suppliers the tenders were awarded too. For each tender there are two links for "technical" and "financial" evaluations, but they require login.
The website of the postal service has details about the location of postal offices, but does not provide any details on postal codes and their correspondence geospatial locations. It is suspected that Egypt does not use an address system that links postal addresses to physical locations.
The Egyptian Meteorological Authority (EMA) provides 5 days forecast (6 hours) for Air Pollution, as well as monthly reports for actual observations [http://nwp.gov.eg/index.php/air-pollution]. The Following measurements are required by the Index, and in between square brackets we list what is provided by EMA:
Reports vary in the measurements shown there. Most of the measurements are missing in recent reports, while they existed in last year's reports. Some other measurements are only shown as forecast but not in reports for actual measurements. The data is only shown in charts, which makes it not possible to extract daily measures. Finally, the most recent report was for May 2015, and it is for one station only (Cairo), older reports had measurements for more stations.
Egyptian Meteorological Authority (EMA) has 5 stations to measure the background pollution around Egypt. The stations are Cairo, South Valley, Marsa Matruh, Hurghada, and Farafra. However, as stated above, the recent reports only shows results from Cairo station, while measurements of other stations were only shown in older reports.
It has not been possible to find an official Egyptian companies register or database that contains comprehensive company information.
The Egyptian International Trade Point (http://www.tpegypt.gov.eg/Arabic/EgyDirectory.asp) has a companies search feature of sorts, but it appears to be geared around buying and selling products rather than information about companies.
