GROWING GEOSPATIAL DEVELOPMENT

In recognition of our innovations in geospatial technology to aid urban planning and develop solutions for the community, the Singapore Land Authority (SLA) was invited to present at the Geospatial Information and Technology Workshop co-organised by the Centre for Liveable Cities and Temasek Foundation International in Ho Chi Minh City on 11 June 2018.

During SLA’s presentation, we showcased Singapore’s National Spatial Data Infrastructure, GeospatialSG, as a framework for managing and using geospatial information and technology. We demonstrated the use of SLA’s very own applications: GeoSpace and OneMap and their capabilities as our core platforms for data delivery and service for innovative land management in Singapore.

Our efforts to spearhead geospatial development were also recognised outside of South East Asia. In New York, SLA participated in the 8th United Nations Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM) which was held from 31 July to 3 August 2018. The international event hosted more than 300 delegates from over 90 countries and discussed emerging and critical global issues related to geospatial information management.

During the event, SLA had the honour of chairing the National Institutional Arrangements (NIA) Working Group, during which we led discussions for developing a foundational guide to help countries implement instruments for geospatial organisational structures and information management.

Geospatial technology has undoubtedly changed the way the world looks at land management. In today’s age of technological disruption, SLA is firmly committed to deepening our engagement, broadening our networks and contributing to the growth of geospatial development to benefit Singaporeans, the region and the world.
