- New OneMap is the authoritative national map of Singapore with the most detailed and updated map information. It is a multi-agency collaboration with many government agencies currently participating and contributing useful day-to-day information and services. The private sector and the community also leverage on the platform to create useful and value-added services.
Developed using Open Source Technologies by an in-house team of developers in Singapore Land Authority. OneMap has been serving the public since 2010.
Some of the new features include:
- Map Styles – choose from a variety of street maps (including satellite imagery) to suit your preference
- Search – improved search engine which stores your previous five search locations
- Driving and Journey Planner – get detailed step by step driving and public transport directions, with walking directions that provide the shortest, most sheltered and safe path
- Find Nearby – locate over 100 thematic information, such as AXS Stations, Hawker Centres, Kindergartens and CHAS Clinics within 2km of your current specified location
- Other services migrated from the previous OneMap platform include:
- LandQuery – identify land ownership and land lot information
- SchoolQuery – search for nearby schools within 1 and 1-2km for Primary 1 school admissions
- Bus Explorer – tap on any bus stop icon on the map to display bus arrival timings and bus service routes
- TrafficQuery – view live traffic conditions, traffic cameras and traffic incidents
- PropertyQuery – find out rental and transacted property prices
- BizQuery – view registered live business entities
