OVERVIEW

SLA develops support and encourage the adoption of Geospatial data, services and technologies as part of the government’s move towards a Smart Nation.

SINGAPORE GEOSPATIAL MASTERPLAN

The Singapore Geospatial Masterplan is a blueprint to maximise the impact of geospatial information and technology along three main pillars:

  • A trusted public service to empower effective geospatial policy-making, planning and operations to support the business community and the citizens of Singapore;
  • A thriving geo-powered business environment that broadens and deepens the use of geospatial technology and data to improve productivity and encourage innovation;
  • An able workforce skilled in understanding, using and implementing geospatial data for the betterment of their everyday lives.

To realise these, SLA has launched the following initiatives.

GEOWORKS

SLA launched GeoWorks, a geospatial-focused industry centre on 16 July 2018 to foster a vibrant geospatial ecosystem between geospatial technology and service providers, users and public agencies. The centre aims to promote business growth, drive innovation and help build a vibrant geospatial community.

GEOSPATIAL CAPABLITY CENTRE

The Geospatial Capability Centre was established to build cutting-edge geospatial capabilities in-house, deepen Singapore’s geospatial expertise and raise capabilities across the Public Service.

GEOSPATIAL SCHOLARSHIPS

An 8-agency supported Geospatial Scholarship was launched to offer local/overseas undergraduate and post-graduate scholarships in geospatial-related courses to qualified candidates.

VIRTUAL SINGAPORE

A detailed 3D digital platform of Singapore, that empowers agencies, research institutions and businesses to derive insights, develop solutions and run simulations using a large-scale city model of Singapore.
