Geo Connect Asia 2023 Highlights: Signing Ceremonies & Collaboration to Improve Accessibility
Memorandum of Understanding with Container Depot and Logistics Association (Singapore)
On 15 March 2023 at Geo Connect Asia 2023, Singapore Land Authority (SLA) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Container Depot and Logistics Association (Singapore) or CDAS. Under the two-year collaboration, CDAS and SLA will utilise geospatial data such as road conditions and restrictions to enable the CDAS's member companies to route their heavy vehicles efficiently and safely.
Collaboration with General Authority for Survey and
Geospatial Information of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
As part of SLA’s efforts to foster international knowledge exchange and contribute our experiences in the use of geospatial data and technology, SLA has also embarked on its first bilateral collaboration with the General Authority for Survey and Geospatial Information (GEOSA), Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The collaboration stems from both countries’ rapid urbanisation, which has seen an increasing need to harness geospatial data and technology in decision making, as there are similar challenges faced by global cities which could benefit from shared solutions.
Collaboration to Improve Accessibility
SLA has also been working with SG Enable and Gardens by the Bay to map barrier-free routes to enable wheelchair users to move about easily. This collaboration is part of SLA’s support for the Enabling Masterplan 2030 which sets out the vision for Singapore as an inclusive society by 2030.
