Ordnance Survey (OS) has signed a deal with the Sultanate of Oman Ministry of Defence to help the National Survey Authority (NSA) advance its position as Oman’s national mapping authority. This contribution to the development of NSA as a world-class national mapping authority is the start of a long-term strategically-important relationship between Oman and OS, as digital mapping and location data increasingly underpins Oman’s digital economy and Government. The deal will see OS International (OSI) assisting Oman’s NSA with the creation of a new online geospatial manual. Contributing to the Oman National Spatial Data Infrastructure, the manual will provide guidance to the survey and geospatial community across Oman, giving government, business and citizens the reliable, credible and authoritative geospatial information necessary for a ‘smart’ economy and society. The OSI delivery team will work with the NSA to update existing material and draft new content for the manual.
