The research included that there are large areas whose spatial advantages can be invested in agricultural activity through the spatial suitability of the two elements (water and soil) by following scientific methods and modern technologies that are compatible with the nature of desert environment, in a way that contributes to achieving development, stability and achieving justice. Research is based on modeling (12) randomly selected samples of water and soil which their locations were determined by using (GPS) and examined laboratory. Their results revealed that there is a clear variation in the spatial characteristics according to the nature of the area. The theory of spatial modeling was applied to it by adopting (G.I.S. and remote sensing techniques R.C.) and producing cartographic models that represent the suitability for the characteristics of each element, and the merging of the characteristics in two models representing (water and soil) to reach a final model in which the area was divided into regions (poor, medium, Convenient, and very convenient), according to the advantages of each one.
