Land data

DEVELOPERS and potential investors will soon have a better idea of places deemed good for development in Fiji with the introduction of the Geospatial Information System Management (GISM).

Land ministry permanent secretary Tevita Boseiwaqa said the ministry was working with stakeholders to come together with their respective data which would all be preserved as one.

"This data will keep a record of everything the public may need to know," Mr Boseiwaqa said.

"From before, respective organisations kept a record of their own data which made it hard for the public to access.

"This will include data from the Lands ministry, other government ministries, USP and the Pacific Islands Applied Geoscience Commission (SOPAC)."

"Currently, there is none to guide us on this. Many developed countries have their own system which deals with capturing different sorts of data, physical, social or economical." said Mr Boseiwaqa
