The island nation of Singapore has a population of five million and a limited land area of 710 square kilometers. Geospatial data and analysis are used to carefully plan economic growth and development, ensuring quality of life for the nation’s citizens. Singapore Land Authority (SLA) is the national land authority and one of the leading geospatial agencies responsible for all aspects of managing state land and buildings. SLA accomplishes this by maintaining a national land information database.
“It is only when people can appreciate the value of integrated geospatial information that efforts to increase data sharing, geospatial adoption, or application development can take root.”
