Geographic Services Unit
The Geographic Services Unit (GSU), of the Field Services Division, carries the responsibility for creating and maintaining a hierarchy of statistical divisions (Enumeration Districts and Special Areas). The Unit is also responsible for census and survey mapping and the production of maps, graphs and charts to illustrate the published results through the use of GIS. The GSU is part of the wider community of users and producers of land information in Jamaica and as such is a member of the Land Information Council of Jamaica (LICJ). Additionally, the responsibility for the provision of advice on diverse geographic issues to public and private sector entities, particularly as it relates to the norms, criteria and the supporting justification for the demarcation of Enumeration Districts (EDs) and Special Areas across the island is assigned to the unit.
