The Ministry of Home Affairs just released a draft policy on regulating geospatial data. We have several concerns regarding this bill and are drafting a response.
Here’s what you can do to contribute to the conversation.
- Read and comment on the policy here.
- Contribute to the conversation on the google group or
- contribute to the hackpad where we are gathering thoughts.
We have a month to respond. This bill could seriously restrict everyone’s access to mapping data and it even might restrict a individuals ability to keep any mapping data. It is an important conversation we need to have with the government.
