Dear NSDI Stakeholder:
 
Re: Belize First Data Integration Workshop Jan 23 - 24
 
The Ministry of Natural Resources and Agriculture, through the Land and Surveys
Department, is in the process of developing a fully functional National Spatial
Data Infrastructure (NSDI) for Belize that will foster national development
through improved accessibility to baseline and other critical geospatial data.
 
One of the activities in 2014 towards this goal is to carry out a series of Data
integration workshops where relevant NSDI stakeholders will meet and contribute
towards the integration of critical baseline data layers. The First Data Integration
Workshop from January 23 – 24 at 9:00am – 4:00pm at the Land Information
Center, Queen Elizabeth II Boulevard, Cohune Walk Area, Belmopan will integrate
(1) the Belize’s Settlements (polygons of all villages and other built-up/developed
areas); and (2) the Belize Building Footprints (layer showing all buildings in the
country).
 
Your organization is an indispensable component of the NSDI effort; therefore we
are inviting one technical personnel from your organization to participate in this
workshop. You are asked to contribute your organization’s data on Settlements
and Building Footprints in Shapefile, Autocad, Excel sheet or other digital format
that will allow all participating organizations to work together to create integrated
data layers for the benefit of the country. This exercise will also enable
organizations to share in efforts to fill in data gaps and to reduce duplication of
efforts in data creation.
 
In addition, we would like to have permission to preview the relevant data from
your organization (where they exist) in order for our technical staff to prepare for
the plan of work during this exercise.
 
We look forward to your support; and the participation from your institution in
this initiative. Kindly confirm by Monday 20th January, 2014 so we can make the
necessary logistical arrangements.
Sincerely,
_________________________________
