  Floods are a major risk in many parts of the world, leading to many risks to life in different fields. The use of modern technologies such as Geographical information system (GIS) reduces the harmful effects of these floods and manages the flood disaster. With the technological development of this age, the use of these techniques is becoming available, as using geographic information systems leads to positive results in managing flood crisis and reducing damage. This study applied Geographical Information System Technology in the spatial analysis of flood risks in Ashareef, East Nile state Sudan using geospatial technologies.
