NSDI Developments

Governments at opposite ends of the Caribbean have put forward new legislation that concerns  their respective National Spatial Data Infrastructures (NSDI). The Bahamas Spatial Data Infrastructure Programme (BSDI) Bill was moved on Jan 8, 2014 in the Bahamas House of Assembly, and the National Assembly of Guyana passed a Land Surveyors (Profession) Bill on Jan 16, 2014. The Government of Guyana has drafted a new version of its National Policy on GI (the existing one was approved in 2001), and the Government of Belize is currently in the early stages of drafting a NSDI Policy for Belize.
