Bahamas National Geographic Information Systems (BNGIS) Centre
The Bahamas is a complex and diverse collection of terrain and topography, both in urban and rural areas, as well as in developed and undeveloped areas. The Bahamas National Geographic Information Systems (BNGIS) Centre provides information to Bahamians about their country in the form of maps charting out things like:
- Subdivision maps
- Street maps
- Oil exploration maps
- Zoning maps
- Land and sea park maps
- Maritime boundary maps
- Imagery maps
As a part of its public awareness strategy, the BNGIS Centre hosts GIS User Conferences, GIS Day Celebrations and GIS School Competitions annually. These events are designed to showcase the application of GIS and associated geo technologies in the workplace and in the classroom. The BNGIS Centre usually invites GIS vendors to display GIS products and services.
