Caribbean SDI Resolutions

The strategic visioning session of the URISA 3rd Caribbean GIS Conference, held on Nov 2 2006 in The Bahamas, involved some 60 participants from 15 countries. The broad areas that were considered to be of significance to national and regional SDI development were:
  1. A Caribbean/Regional SDI Coordinating Body
  2. Capacity Building, GIS Training and Education
  3. Funding for GIS Development
  4. Information Technology
  5. Data Acquisition
  6. Data Access and Dissemination
  7. Institutional Arrangements
  8. SDI Policy/Legislation
  9. Contract Specifications and Consultancy Services
  10. Geodetic Infrastructure
Though well-considered, the Caribbean SDI Resolutions (66KB Word) are still essentially draft and not ratified by any regional authority.
