INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE

As 2018 draws to a close, the Singapore Land Authority (SLA) continued to play host to international delegations and share our knowledge on land management and administration, land title registration and geospatial development.

GeoWorks, set up by the SLA as an industry centre to galvanise the geospatial industry by connecting geospatial businesses, entrepreneurs as well as users, hosted delegates from the Korea Land and Geospatial Informatix Corporation (Lx) who were here to learn about OneMap as well as the dynamic 3D platform, Virtual Singapore. GeoWorks also hosted South Korean delegates from the Suwon City Government, who came to discover how Virtual Singapore had the potential to transform urban planning and the city landscape. Delegates from the Korea Housing Institute also visited SLA to learn about land administration. The visits led to robust discussion and engagement as we exchanged experiences and ideas with our visitors.

Delegates from the Strata Titles Survey Working Committee of Sarawak visited SLA to learn more about survey standards, plan formats and fees of land and accessory parcels as well as Strata Titles application procedures. The topics of interim property management, OneMap and land administration were keen interest areas for our South African friends from the Public Works Department, Western Cape Provincial Government.

The Singapore Geospatial Masterplan was an area of interest for delegates from the United Kingdom who experienced SLA’s tech experimentation with Virtual Reality (VR) to simulate living in a 3D city model environment and discussed the possibilities for inter-agency collaboration.

These visits not only allowed the delegates to learn about Singapore and SLA, but also enabled SLA to build rapport with our global counterparts.
