SINGAPORE - The Singapore Land Authority (SLA) has launched the OneMap LandQuery service for mobile apps.
Called Pocket OneMap, it allows mobile phone users to access SLA's land parcel information portal LandQuery on the go. Through the app, users can find out information about a piece of land, including its owners, and the exact lot number of any address in Singapore. It also allows users to locate buildings or roads.
OneMap is an integrated map system, providing a wide range of government information from more than 70 thematic layers of information and value-added services ranging from education, culture, community, to the environment.
Pocket OneMap was developed by Nanyang Polytechnic, and is available for free on iOS, Android and Windows platforms.
Other services such as SchoolQuery and Public Transport Routing will also be added to Pocket OneMap by June 2014.
In 2013, the GeoInnovation Fund was launched to nurture innovative ideas such as Pocket OneMap, and grow the Geospatial Information Science and Technology (GIST) field.
