U.S. University to use GIS for land reforms in St. Kitts

Vanderbilt University in U.S. is to undertake a land use analysis and implement an integrated land system on St. Kitts. The university will produce a range of maps and statistics that will provide scientific inputs into the feasibility studies and reports in respect of land use changes and the proposed activities on the sugar lands. The Ministry of Sustainable Development also intend to work with Vanderbilt University to implement an Integrated Land System that will produce various critical outputs including a GIS framework to coordinate and standardise the management of spatial information, a Land Cadastral Map, a Land ownership database that would support the establishment of a modern land registry, and an updated and fully annotated land use map.
