Spatial Law and Policy

This is a link http://spatiallaw.blogspot.ca/ to Kevin's Blog that speaks to Spatial Law and Policy and provides information that examines the legal issues impacting spatial data collection and usage. A very useful link for developing countries that may be seeking to develop polices relating to spatial data infrastructure and the collection and use of spatial information..
I hope to develop this blog into a comprehensive source of information relating to GeoInfomatics, GIS and ICT Developments in the Caribbean region. The blog will include articles from contributors, links to news from the wider GIS world, challenges impacting Geoinfomatics, GIS and ICT usage in the Caribbean region.

The blog will also feature trending topics and links to news from around the world that shapes how we use Geoinfomatics, GIS and Technology in general.

My first link is to the National Land Agency of Jamaica iMap. http://www.nla.gov.jm/map.asp which show how developing countries can start using GIS infrastructure.
