11 am to 12 pm    OneMap3D Launch

OneMap3D aims to transform how businesses and citizens use maps, providing an immersive experience. This presentation will showcase updates on the 3D drone planner and 3D property query features as well as what OM3D is capable of. Find out more about OM3D and hear how developers create map-based applications and services using OM3D.

OneMap3D is a dynamic 3D visualisation platform developed in-house by SLA. OM3D Beta launched at the Singapore Geospatial Week 2020, it transitions the existing OneMap (2D) to a 3D city map with enhanced co-creation of innovative solutions using 3D geospatial data. For example, businesses and property agents can use OneMap3D for a better representation of properties, with window-views and shadow casting. Citizens can also use OneMap3D to orient themselves with landmarks to scale, and navigate through walkways and void deck spaces.

12 pm to 1 pm    GeoAI and 3D geo data: Singapore Land Authority

Come and listen to two geospatial specialists from the Singapore Land Authority share their views on 3D data and computer vision

GeoAI – Computer vision and image recognition for geospatial data collection of doorway points of interest 
Stephanie Khoo, Senior Geospatial Specialist, Singapore Land Authority
In an ever-changing world, data needs to be updated regularly to reflect on-the-ground changes. This includes GeoSpatial data. In this session, we talk about how computer vision and image recognition technologies can help us improve the efficiency of collecting geospatial data for doorway points of interest. We also explore the uses and applications of this data in helping us understand our urban environment better. 

3D geodata – Making sense of the world
Vincent Soh, Technical Manager, Singapore Land Authority
3D GeoSpatial Data is a key cornerstone in 3D maps and Digital Twins. From wind flow modelling to solar photovoltaics assessment, there had been many potential applications been explored. This session explores what one could possible look at for using 3D GeoData, and how one could bring their own data and make sense in the 3D world.

Bringing Spatial Matters to the Board’s Decision-Making
Muhammad Pandito Pratama, Former Head of Corporate Transformation, PT Transportasi Jakarta (Transjakarta)
Operating since 2004 and turning into a private limited company in 2014, Transjakarta has abundant data, whether it is spatial or non-spatial. However,  the data scattered in a mess. With guts and little knowledge of GIS, Pandito tried to introduce spatial analysis for decision making. The impact is profound, from rearranging our separator to defending our first corridor due to MRT.
