The first modern mapping of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was established after an inter-governmental agreement with the United States in 1954. 1:500,000 scale mapping was compiled from aerial photographs by United States Geological Survey (USGS) and published in two parallel series, each covering Saudi Arabia in 21 sheets. These maps comprised a four-color geographical edition and a geological map, prepared with ground interpretation by the Arabian American Oil Company (ARAMCO), and were used as sources for the compilation of 1:2,000,000 scale coverage of the Kingdom. The maps have been revised and are available from the civilian earth science and topographic mapping agency of the Kingdom, the Deputy Ministry for Mineral Resources (DMMR) in the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources in Jiddah. 1:50,000 and 1:100,000 scale topographic programs were established in the 1960s on the UTM projection, International ellipsoid, by Clyde Surveys, Great Britain, in a contract with the Aerial Survey Department, another branch of the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources. This work also saw the creation of numerous large scale city and wadi maps of the country. Since 1975 topographic coverage of Saudi Arabia has also been produced by the Military Survey Department, in the Ministry of Defence and Aviation. These civilian and military programs were compiled on contract by a number of different western agencies and published as six-color photomaps (for desert areas) or as full-color line mapping. Maps are on the Transverse Mercator projection, Clarke 1880 ellipsoid, with a UTM grid. Each 1:50,000 sheet covers a 15' x 15' quadrangle, while 1:100,000 scale sheets cover areas of 30' x 30'. Coverage has progressively extended starting from the areas of greatest economic interest where petroleum exploration is taking place. Larger scale topographic mapping has been carried out in some parts of the country, notably a 1:25,000 scale survey of the Jiddah and Riyadh region, and urban mapping has been issued at a number of larger scales. Soviet military topographic mapping of Saudi Arabia is available at the following scales: 1:1,000,000 (17 sheets, complete coverage, published 1973-1990); 1:500,000 (46 sheets, complete coverage, published 1972-1989); 1:200,000 (314 sheets, complete coverage, published 1972-1991); 1:100,000 (314 sheets, primarily northern and coastal coverage, published 1975-1986) and city (1:10,000 to 1:25,000) topographic mapping of Al Hufuf, Jeddah, Mecca, Medina and Riyadh published between 1978 and 1983. These products are available in print, digital raster and digital vector GIS formats from East View Geospatial.
