The Master Map Series

Created by the National Land Agency

The National Land Agency (NLA), Jamaica’s official mapping Agency, offers a variety of customized and standardized mapping products ranging from: topographic, planimetric and cadastral maps, aerial photographs and digital parcel data.

Since 2005, the NLA has produced ten (10) Master Map Series, each at scale 1:4,000, depicting the natural and manmade features of the major towns across Jamaica.  Available for purchase in hard and soft copy, the Master Maps can be used for development planning, modelling, navigation and simply visualization purposes by professionals within the Real Estate, Land Surveying, Architecture, Engineering, Construction, Education, Health, Fire, Criminology, Transportation, and Social Services sectors. The ease with which these maps may be used, makes them very suitable for use by general members of the public.

The Master Maps have been created with a significant level of detail and include, but not limited to the following features:

  • Extensive coverage of parcel boundaries.
  • Detailed road network showing major and minor roads.
  • Contours and Spot Heights showing the elevation of the land.
  • Building footprints of featured properties, indicating the shape of the structure within the parcel boundary.
  • Points of interest and place names including hospitals, schools, churches, police and fire stations.
  • Map Index which shows the relationship between each map sheet.

The NLA, through the work of the Surveys and Mapping Division, continues its work to modernize Jamaica’s national cadastre and is committed to the role it continues to play in national growth, through the development of a modern Multipurpose Land Information System, the foundation of which is grounded in maps such as our Master Map Series.
