The National Survey Authority (NSA) of the Sultanate of
Oman was established in 1985 as a unit within the Oman
Ministry of Defence and is responsible for military and
civilian surveying and mapping of the state. The Sultanate
is covered in 137 1:100,000 scale maps on the Transverse
Mercator projection, International ellipsoid, published in
(Series K6611). This British military series was started by the
Directorate of Military Survey (DMS), as a joint English and
Arabic script version. NSA now maintains and updates the
mapping. Limited field revision and
general update of the series is being carried out and a
program was completed in 1996 involving the conversion
of place names into Arabic versions. A program of
1:50,000 scale mapping has been started, based upon new
1:60,000 scale aerial coverage, to support military and geological
exploration requirements. A long term large scale digital
mapping program for civilian ministries is in progress
and includes 1:2,000, 1:5,000 and 1:10,000 scale map compilation and generation of AUTOCAD data. Urban
areas and areas with development potential are being
mapped, and ARC/INFO coverages of 1:20,000 scale
mapping are being produced as part of the new National
1:20,000 scale maps of Muscat and Salalah are
available and NSA publishes
a regularly revised tourist map at 1:300,000 scale, available in
English or Arabic versions.
