Let's hope this helps Aruba in any future "missing" people or visitors. As the Carole King song goes, "Well it's too late baby, now it's too late..."

LeadDog Releases Comprehensive Islandwide Maps for Aruba

(Source)--LeadDog Consulting, an international provider of street and road maps, has announced the release of detailed islandwide geographic databases for Aruba. LeadDog maps support military, government, asset-tracking, and commercial GIS applications.

Designed to deliver accurate positional data, assist organizations in tracking their assets, and provide accurate base-level mapping, LeadDog's product provides numerous vector layers and attributes such as:

  • Streets at 1:10,000 scale
  • Street names
  • Street classifications
  • Extensive Points of Interest (airports, hospitals, government offices)
  • Water and Landmark polygons
  • Political division and borders

"This allows our clients to immediately use datasets with a high level of confidence they will meet application requirements," said LeadDog's president, Jim Anderson. "Our Aruba datasets are comparable in quality and 'look and feel' to maps for the U.S. and Europe, which is a big issue for our clients who don't have the time to sort out different data formatting in every country they look at."

LeadDog's products aim to allow GIS users to replicate GIS solutions efficiently and cost effectively across Aruba and other countries in Latin America.

The databases for Aruba will just accelerate its corrupt government in further montoring and control of its native island people. Increase its coverups of the serious crimes there which is danger to all the American tourists. The way it goes, Aruba's corruptions of its Oduber government is getting totally out of control, and it's hurting the reputation of Holland. Holland is viewed by the world as the most corrupt Kingdom in Europe, which is bad! Boycott the Queen.
