OMAN – Our work in a nutshell
 Version 2006

Taken from Google Earth

Satellites and the GPS have revolutionized land survey mapping even more than the advent of the E.D.M. (Tellurometer etc.), the computer (calculations and C.A.D.), and Total station instruments (electronic self-reading and recording theodolite with EDM combined), all of which were exciting and effort-saving developments in the survey field. I have welcomed and greatly appreciated all these technological advances and I think their utility is even more enhanced by the fact that I have the satisfaction of also having done survey ‘the hard way’. (What would our forebears from the Survey of India say?)
