Singapore Land Authority (SLA)’s StreetMap@Singapore can now be viewed on PDAs, PDA phones, and smartphones. SLA and MapKing (Singapore) Pte Ltd have jointly launched a mobile version of the online StreetMap@Singapore, named `SLA StreetMap Mobile’. It can be downloaded for free onto any mobile device running on Windows Mobile Operating System.

2 SLA StreetMap Mobile has similar functions with its online StreetMap@Singapore at, which peaked at 70 million hits. Anyone with a compatible mobile device can search for location maps using address, road name, postal code, building or development name on the move. Containing about 2,000 buildings, 4,200 named roads, and some 120,000 updated address points, the StreetMap Mobile is driven by the MapKing engine with a user-friendly interface.

3 SLA’s Director of Land Asset Management Services Division and Land Information Centre (土地资产管理服务处兼土地资讯中心处长), Mr Ng Siau Yong (黄晓勇) said: “SLA StreetMap Mobile is another public service launched by SLA as the national mapping authority. We have provided this free and no-frills mobile version because we want to offer members of the public an additional means to access SLA’s free maps on the move, especially when more and more Singaporeans own a mobile device nowadays.”

4 MapKing spokesperson, Mr Simon Goh said: “MapKing is proud to
collaborate with SLA in developing this application as a public service. In addition, we are able to provide our expertise on navigation software, and bring the most accurate, updated and reliable maps from the authoritative source to Singaporeans.”
