Oman Geospatial Manual (OGM)
Project: The Oman Geospatial Manual is step forward to
complement the Geospatial Infrastructure NSA has
implemented in recent times. The Strategic Projects such
as the CORS network, The Geoid Model, the Sultanates
Local Datum depends on the valid Geospatial Manual. The
Manual contains information which enables and prepares
the Sultanate of Oman geospatial community to meet the
challenges of future survey and geospatial data creation
within Oman. The Project has been completed in the first
quarter of 2016.
The Manual presents policy and guidelines for surveying
and the creation of geospatial data, as well as defining
the national standards and specification for surveying
and geospatial data creation.
The Oman Geospatial Manual is intended as a guide for
those organisations within Oman that undertake surveying
activity and produce geospatial data. Surveyors and
geospatial data providers can identify the subjects and
specific content within the Manual which is relevant to
their work and use it as a supporting guide. .
