Oman: At the IT, Telecom and Technology exhibition, COMEX 2014, which commenced on 7 April at Oman International Exhibition Centre, the National Centre for Statistics and Information (NCSI) unveiled a smartphone app called NCSI Geo. The free app contains interactive digital maps and satellite imagery that allow users to access population figures, and building and establishment information within the Sultanate.

The app provides access to various statistical options related to population density and demographic profiles, and illustrates the demographic landscape and population distribution in every Wilayat and governorate across the Sultanate. Additionally, the buildings and establishment option gives users access to information about the location of various public and service establishments like hospitals, schools, health centres and police stations, etc.
