SLA partners with top 5 property agencies for OneMap
The project aims to innovate Singapore's geospatial information data.
The Singapore Land Authority (SLA) has signed memoranda of understanding (MOUs) with PropNex Realty, ERA Realty Network, OrangeTee & Tie, Huttons Asia, and SRI, the five largest property agencies in Singapore.
The MOUs will see SLA partner with the property agencies to collaborate on geospatial innovation and improvement of hyperlocal and granular data in Singapore. 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.
SLA CEO Colin Low said, "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. The real estate sector is one area that has the latent potential to leverage geospatial technology to enhance its service delivery. We look forward to having the property agencies and partners on board to co-innovate and unlock more value for the benefit of the community."
Consumers looking to buy, sell or rent a residential, commercial, and industrial property could benefit from the enriched data from OneMap to make a more informed decision regarding their property transaction.
