Singapore Government has used Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to form life less complicated for Singaporeans in generally surprising ways. Singapore is thought of as a garden town, however that verdure wants continued pruning, maintenance, and a spotlight. The National Parks Board has created a system to map every single tree in the nation and track their condition.

It is impossible to go around counting every single tree. But with a geospatial platform one immediately knows how many trees are under maintenance, what is the maintenance frequency, and more importantly, what is the greenery structure around Singapore’s island.

Citizens can also track this system, and provide feedback on their favourites. It’s about getting the community involved in building a greener Singapore.

 

  1. Increasing Singapore’s safety

The nation famously built an app that let first aiders see nearby cardiac arrests, rushing to the scene before the ambulance arrived to provide vital life-saving support.

It has now morphed into a larger role where you can help extinguish small fires in neighbourhoods.  GIS is saving lives, bringing in the community to participate alongside the government.

 

  1. Making everyday decisions

Geospatial can help people with “everyday decisions. The government has used it to track all feedback given across so that it can allocate resources more effectively.

Singapore Land Authority’s ‘One Map’ system that could be a single record of all geographical datasets in Singapore. This technique is obtaining the associate upgrade, being moved into 3D. This may facilitate produce new increased reality and computer game datasets still.

OneMap is obtainable for everybody to use: government, citizens and businesses.
