Data should include maps of lands with parcel layer that displays boundaries in addition to a land registry with information on registered parcels of land. The Index focuses on assessing open land tenure data (describing the rules and processes of land property). Responsible use may enable tenure security and increase the transparency of land transactions. The assessment criteria were developed in collaboration with Cadasta Foundation. For more information on land ownership datasets and where they're located, check out Cadasta Foundation's Data Overview.

The Ministry of Housing of Oman has an electronic database for lands in the country that it uses to administer land registrations. An interface has been made available for residents in the capital to access the data for own property on the system ( https://eservices.housing.gov.om/arb/Pages/Maps.aspx ). It is not possible to generally browse the database or look up properties owned by other people.
