Qatar has an official geospatial data portal ( ) that provides an interactive map with a variety of data layers. However, it is not possible to download the data from the website and the website is built using Flash and can only be accessed through direct human input. It is not clear from the website the date of the last update of the data of this map.

Reviewer comments

Unfortunatly when I tried the portal it didn't load so I could not review the data, so I'm leaving this entry as is.
