OSGoF collaborates with NAMA to create air travel maps

The Office of the Surveyor-General of the Federation (OSGoF) and the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) have agreed to collaborate on the production of various charts to improve the safety and security of air travel in the country.

Abuduganiyu Adebomehin, the Federation’s Surveyor General, revealed this during a meeting with the agency in Abuja, saying that the plan is a national initiative that makes maps and other instruments available to industry.

Adebomehin emphasized the importance of surveyors and technical staff working collaboratively to generate charts and maps that ensure the safety and security of aircraft and their passengers.

The SGoF raised concern about the government’s massive financial demands from diverse sectors, stating that going forward, the manufacturing of maps will provide geospatial services to citizens.

Additionally, Asifat Badmus, NAMA’s Deputy General Manager, stated that the apex surveying and mapping institution would always be required to provide the fundamentals for air traffic positioning for improved services.

According to him, it is necessary to update topographical maps and charts, as well as the data associated with them, in order for them to function properly and assist NAMA in producing charts that meet International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards.
