GeoWorks launches OneMap3D Beta at Singapore Geospatial Week+ 2020

The Beta version of OneMap3D, Singapore Land Authority (SLA)’s opensource 3D city map portal, is now available for trial to businesses, developers and members of the public. OneMap3D Beta was launched on September 17 2020 at Singapore Geospatial Week+ 2020. 

SLA Chairman Yeoh Oon Jin mentioned in a press release that with global attention and the trend of digitalization, they are anticipating steady growth in the geospatial market. This is evident in the effort and resources invested by both the United Nations and the World Bank to strengthen geospatial expertise and adoption around the world.

Riding early on the growth through GeoWorks, they envision Singapore to become the GeoHub of the region, with a well-connected industry network, supported by robust geospatial data to drive innovation. SLA Acting Chief Executive Simon Ong said that 3D city map provides an immersive view of a user’s surroundings and serves as a dynamic visualization platform.

They hope the Beta version of OneMap3D will catalyze more co-creations of innovative solutions using 3D geospatial data. OneMap3D is continuously enhanced and they want to collaborate with businesses, developers and community users to improve the Beta version. Since 2010, OneMap has been serving the public as the national map of Singapore with the most authoritative and detailed map information in 2D format.

OneMap is a multi-agency collaboration with continuous updates from government agencies for information and services such as navigating for places of interests, hawker centres, parks, sports centres and even heritage trees. Private sector entities and community users have also been leveraging on OneMap’s Application Programming Interface (API), to create useful and value-added services.

The OneMap3D beta launch features pilot partners and co-developers with innovative use of 3D models. This follows SLA’s initiation in September 2019 for industry collaboration to co-develop the nation’s first open-source 3D map portal.
