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 Geographic Database. 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. Soviet military topographic mapping remains the best available for the Sultanate of Oman, existing at the following scales: 1:1,000,000 (5 sheets, complete coverage, published 1957-1982); 1:500,000 (12 sheets, complete coverage, published 1977-1982); 1:200,000 (64 sheets, complete coverage, published 1975-1981) and 1:100,000 (130 sheets, primarily eastern country coverage, published 1978-1979). These products are available in print, digital raster and digital vector GIS formats from East View Geospatial.
