Downtown data collection project begins in Bahamas


Nassau, Bahamas: The Downtown Nassau Partnership (DNP) and the Bahamas National Geographic Information System Center (BNGISC) started the Downtown Data Collection Project. This initiative seeks to create a single database of all businesses, services, buildings and stakeholders in the Downtown community while providing information on the mix and make up of elements in the city.

“The information we seek to collect is the type of information that every city needs to have, in a format that will allow the DNP to communicate effectively with the Downtown community and further drive the revitalisation of Bay Street,” said Vaughn Roberts, Managing Director of the DNP.

During a three week period, teams will go door-to-door and visit stakeholders between Nassau and Mackey Streets to facilitate the collection process. This effort maintains the DNP’s commitment in fostering partnerships with both private company and public department to facilitate its goals.
