Survey of Pakistan, which emerged as a successor to pre-partition Royal Survey of India, is a National Surveying and Mapping Organization of the country. It is primarily responsible for all sorts of topographical land surveys of cis-frontier areas of the entire country. The basic products include map sheets on scale 1:50,000 and 1:250,000.
The department is actively participating in the national development projects and thus fulfilling the ever-growing surveying and mapping demands of various government / semi-government and autonomous bodies. The geodetic data prepared and maintained by the department is matchless in its accuracy and use.
Over the past years, the department has taken a milestone turn by gradually switched over to surveying and mapping using modern techniques, methods and equipment. This resulted in the outstanding capability of using and manipulating topographical data to develop a wide range of applications including Geographical Information System.
