[OSGeo Africa] Data required - land ownership and ground water resources

Aslam might disagree, but his department (admittedly another directorate -
SPI) is constructing "El Dorado". Think spatial data from 13 sector
departments and some parastatals; each of the 700 plus spatial layers
assigned to a data custodian (responsible official); access over the
internet plus WMS and possibly WFS.

I cant elaborate, because it keeps me too busy :-)

    Seeing as ALL government employees have already gone home I suppose it
    now safe to talk freely

    ( Ok ok I am joking ..... )

    I do not know about other areas but for KZN this might help


    The Cadastral Data Capture Project is interesting

    Other data appears to be available as well

    Why so quiet Mr Sam Yirenkyi ( Does GISSA not read this mail list ? )

    I seem to have found a bit of an "El Dorado"  ( why did I never ever
    this site before ? Useless GOOGLE )
