The government of St. Kitts and Nevis announced Thursday it is embarking on a project in collaboration with Medici Land Governance to take aerial pictures around St. Kitts using a low-flying aircraft at 1,500 feet Dec. 9-17.

In October, Medici Land Governance, Overstock.com, Inc.’s blockchain subsidiary focused on land administration, signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the government to develop a cadaster system — a visual representation of land and other real property showing the location and extent of property, often with imagery and diagrams —to be integrated into its current land administration system.

High-resolution aerial imagery from the aircraft will be used for that purpose, and the public should consider itself “perfectly safe,” according to the announcement.

Today is Juneteenth, a day that commemorates the end of slavery in the United States. It is held on June 19, to mark the date in 1865 when Union soldiers rode into Galveston, Texas and told a group of slaves that the Civil War had ended and they were now free.

As a part of commitment to fight the spread of COVID-19, we at @medici_land_gov donated foot propelled hand washing machines, masks, and anti-bacterial soap throughout Lusaka, Zambia. On Monday, Mayor Miles Sampa delivered some of these donations to Vera Chiluba primary school.

Our collective hearts @medici_land_gov are heavy with the recent tragic killings of #GeorgeFloyd #BreonnaTaylor #AhmaudArbery #DavidMcAtee. There are many ways to engage and stop the spread of discrimination and support and advocate for social justice reform. #BlackLivesMatter
