A geodetic control network is a fundamental precondition for the production and processing of surveying documentation in the field. A cooperation of the former Czechoslovak Institute of Egyptology, Faculty of Arts, Charles University and the Department of Special Geodesy, Faculty of Civil Engineering, Czech Technical University in Prague started in June 1962 during the UNESCO’s international Nubia Campaign (Procházka – Vachala 2003). This article informs about the process of setting up an updated geodetic control network at the site of Abusir, the concession of the Czech Institute of Egyptology, Faculty of Arts, Charles University, Prague, which is newly kept in Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinates.
