OneMap is an integrated map platform for public agencies to publish information and deliver map-based services. OneMap makes location maps and data from various govt. agencies available through its web portal (www.onemap.sg) and also makes it available through an Application Programming Interface (API) for others to consume in their applications.
Using OneMap API, agencies can embed maps into their web and mobile applications providing a consistent and common map identity across different platforms and websites. OneMap makes streetmap, address, and other geospatial data available to all as a service.
The data layers in OneMap are also open to the private sector or community for development of innovative mapping applications.
