How location technology contributes to Smart Singapore

Under it’s Smart Nation Initiative, Singapore has embarked on strategic national projects that reduce friction between the government, businesses, and citizens, improving productivity while paying attention to sustainability. One of the initiatives towards this goal is the Singapore Geospatial Master Plan. 

The Master Plan aims at getting the private sector involved with public services, and developing the young to be interested in GIS, geography and location-based services and data. In the long run, the country aims to create an entire ecosystem that will fundamentally function on location-based data. This way, going forward, the Smart Nation will not only be premised on technology but will be really anchored on location technology. 

How location play a role 

Singapore is looking at building a digital twin of the actual environment that will fuse location-based data, and enable public agencies as well as businesses to simulate and build upon the future.

The country is also looking at new technologies like AI, deep learning, Big Data analytics, etc. to be able to make more accurate, fast and efficient decisions, leading to the development of more productive strategies and initiatives for building Smart Nations and Smart Cities. 

Although today a complete picture of Singapore is available in 3D form; in the future, the country is looking at 4D data. The time element is important to enable real-time services, which is key to Smart Nation.
