More services and information on OneMap

Singapore: OneMap, an integrated map platform which enables the public to access government agencies’ location-based services and information, now features more services and information. Two new services, PropertyPrices and Space2Lease, have recently been added to OneMap to help individuals interested in the residential property market information and businesses in search of commercial space.
PropertyPrices will be of interest to property buyers and sellers as it shows the transacted prices of both private housing and Housing and Development Board (HDB) resale flats over the past year on a map.  Users can also view information such as size of the unit, tenure type (freehold or leasehold) and transaction date. PropertyPrices complements existing property market information services provided by Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) and HDB.  It combines property transaction data provided by the URA and HDB on a common map platform. 
Space2Lease allows businesses to check for government properties available for rent by the Singapore Land Authority (SLA) and HDB. Information such as the floor area and monthly rental of available commercial space can be viewed at a glance on a map, saving businesses the hassle of having to visit each government agency’s website. 
Mobile applicationsOneMap is now also available on the iPhone. Developers can use the set of Application Programming Interface (APIs) to develop applications for the mobile platform using the OneMap infrastructure. Several iPhone apps have already been published using this platform, including NParks’ Parks Live, URA’s Masterplan 2008 and Property Market Information, as well as Nanyang Polytechnic’s Pocket OneMap. Nanyang Polytechnic, OneMap’s Academic Institution Partner, has designed and recently rolled out the iPhone and iPad version of Pocket OneMap, making it easy for users to access OneMap information and services while on the go.
