OneMap +

Title: OneMap Community Workshop

OneMap is a whole-of-government mapping platform which helps agencies deliver geospatial information and services. This workshop provides an introduction to how the OneMap platform was developed, its innovative and collaborative features and the variety of Application Programme Interface that developers can tap on to power their geospatial applications., one of GeoWorks' GeoTech will join the workshop as a guest speaker and share their experiences on how they leverage on OneMap to power their smart property portal.

Title: Create Your Own Maps

Nowadays, everyone has access to geospatial information and can participate in creating a map. This process helps us interact with our surroundings more thoroughly, and understand the space we live in. In this workshop, the participants will learn some of the basic skills to work with geospatial data, as well as case studies of how geospatial can be applied to a real project in order to solve issues. Participants will also get the chance to do hands-on exercises to make their own maps and tell stories in the neighborhood to inform and inspire others.




Title: Creating and Validating Crowdsourced Data

(*2pm to 3.30pm slot is full, 3.30pm to 5pm is still available)

Creating crowdsourced data is an interesting process but to make sure that the data created is accurate, we have to validate them for their accuracy and correctness. This hands-on workshop will focus on enhancing participants’ understanding of creating and validating map content that reflects real-world conditions. Participants will also learn various validation tools and methods that could be used to evaluate the accuracy of their contributions.


Curious Tales from Singapore Maps

How were the Himalayas, Java and Singapore once related cartographically? How did the “tiger” end up in New Zealand? What is the relationship between the book Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and Clarke Quay? All these curiosities and more will be revealed by map consultant Mok Ly Yng as he shares a selection of stories collected over his 20 years of research on Singapore maps and mapping.

Lightning Talks

Hear from various industry players and discover how other forms of technology such as Augmented Reality can synergise with geospatial technology.

Raffles' Banded Langur Working Group

Title: Conservation of Critically Endangered Leaf Monkey, the Raffles’ Banded Langur in Singapore Using Geospatial

The Raffles’ Banded Langur is a critically endangered primate species that was first discovered from Singapore nearly 200 years ago. This leaf-eating monkey is only found in Singapore and southern Peninsular Malaysia with a small global population size of 300-400 individuals. In order to ensure the long-term survival of this highly threatened species, it is important to understand their spatial use of the forest habitat to identify key conservation hotspots and areas for reforestation and reconnectivity.

Title: Visual Analytics - How To Augment the Human Analyst

With new crime reports coming in every minute in Indonesia, it is essential to have a central monitoring and crime analysis starting from the sub-district level up to the national level. The idea is to create sophisticated spatial analytics tools that will provide decision makers with a more comprehensive set of data and quickly analyse reported crimes and other incidents. These tools can also be used to visualise where and when crimes mostly occur and identify patterns to prioritise and position their resources.

Title: What Impact does Geospatial Technology have on Urban Development?

In an age where there is an abundance of data and technology, it depends on how this data is used and applied across fields. Ever wondered how geospatial data and Artificial Intelligence technology can help with urban planning and urban development? These are powerful tools that can greatly help urban planners with enhanced visibility into data and help fuel future developmental plans.
