Pakistan Moves to Bar Unregistered Mapping Firms

by Matt Ball on October 19, 2010

The government of Pakistan is set to approve the Land Surveying and Mapping Bill, according to the Business Recorder. The bill will set up the Survey of Pakistan as the national mapping agency and will require all firms engaged in surveying and mapping to register with the agency.

The wording of the bill acknowledges the increased ease of mapping, with the availability of satellite imagery and GNSS technologies, and aims to instill high-quality standards for mapmaking as well as ensuring against mapping areas of high security risk. The aim also is to reduce duplication of effort, as well as the integrity of survey markers by assigning authority and protection to local governments.
