On 8th January 2014, Minister of the Environment and Housing, Hon. Kenred Dorsett, moved the Bahamas Spatial Data Infrastructure Programme (BSDI) Bill in the House of Assembly. Minister Dorsett said in his presentation that “the Bahamas Spatial Data Infrastructure Programme Bill provides policy statements and identifies initial core databases for the use of the BDSI System. The government of The Bahamas recognizes that direction must be given to providing an environment which fosters activities for using, managing and producing geographic data and applying standards, procedures and protocols in a coordinated manner.” More information: http://myplp.org/2014/01/08/dorsett-moves-bsdi-bill/.
