The Singapore Land Authority (SLA) has signed memoranda of understanding with the island nation’s five largest property agencies, with the aim of collaborating on geospatial innovation and improvement of hyperlocal and granular data.
Under the MOUs, the property agencies will collect relevant details to enhance SLA’s OneMap and OneMap3D, such as the location of entrances, lifts, and certain features of selected properties.
The property agencies’ selected suite of websites and mobile applications will also be enhanced with the granular and hyperlocal data available on OneMap.
With this collaboration, property agents could benefit from seamless integration of a wide array of detailed and accurate location information from OneMap directly on the agencies’ platforms.
This includes useful data on buildings, locations of schools in proximity to a property as well as 3D models from SLA’s OneMap3D, which would enable users to view shadow castings and north-south-east-west views from a property.
“As the geospatial agency in Singapore, SLA is always looking for opportunities to partner both the private and public sectors as well as the community to co-create and spur further innovation in geospatial technology and related applications,” said SLA Chief Executive, Colin Low.
“The real estate sector is one area which has latent potential to leverage geospatial technology to enhance its service delivery.
“We look forward to having the property agencies as well as more partners on board to co-innovate and unlock more value for the benefit of the community.”
