The ministry signed an agreement with the country's mapping organization to collect the geographical locations of mosques and affiliated places on a digital platform, according to Soutalomma.com.
Minister Muhammad Mukhtar Gomaa said that each mosque in the country will be loaded separately on this digital map.
This will facilitate people's access to mosques as all the characteristics of the mosques can be seen while searching, he added.
The mapping organization has been tasked with building a digital version of the maps.
On the other hand, Gomaa continued, this will help document mosques' information and control any incident inside the mosques.
This will also lead to a more efficient use of public properties, noted the minister.
