Are there any free, publicly available datasets for Singapore? I've examined Openstreetmap, Global Admin Boundaries, GRUMP and the Natural Earth datasets, but I'm interested in vector data of higher resolution and or any type of census information.

Singapore seems to be a bit of a black hole when it comes to searching for GIS data; I would appreciate any suggestions.

Is there a specific type of data you're looking for (road network, population distribution, &c)? – mattwigway Dec 8 '11 at 6:52
Yes - I am interested in population data, land-use zoning and buildings (although I realise that is unlikely). Road networks would also be of interest. – djq Dec 8 '11 at 6:56

Lots of Spatial Data for Singapore

Vector Data (under 'Spatial' Data Type - Location or Imagery sub types)

and Census Data

Web Mapping available here:

Sorry - I should have clarified that I am interested in free data (I think 'public' is ambiguous). Unfortunately these data sources are incredibly expensive. – djq Dec 8 '11 at 1:22
