Land Use Maps

Land Use Maps

2015, Nov 20    

In 1960’s and 1970’s a survey was done of the Bahamas by the Directorate of Overseas Surveys. It combined vegetation, land ownership, and land use and was compiled in a series of reports titled “The Land Resources of the Bahamas”. The agency closed in 2001 and the archives are now held in the National Collection of Aerial Photography (NCAP).
