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.

  • Is there a specific type of data you're looking for (road network, population distribution, &c)?

  • 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.

Lots of Spatial Data for Singapore

Table data https://data.gov.sg/dataset/resident-population-by-ethnicity-gender-and-age-group?view_id=8ff89d3f-48c8-46e4-8a4d-a8b9f152976f&resource_id=f9dbfc75-a2dc-42af-9f50-425e4107ae84

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.

  • updated links - If you search the sites they have the data - sites change over 5 years

From the Singapore 2014 Master Plan:

The above is provided in KML. The above also links to Region Boundary (5 regions) and the more granular Subzone Boundary files (323 subzones).

There's also the Planning Area Census 2010 (also in KML) which has more useful polygon labels, although they're embedded in markup, e.g.: <p><font color="red"><i></i> <b>Planning Area Name - JURONG WEST</b> </font></p> <p><font color="Blue"><i></i> <b>Region Name - WEST REGION</b> </font></p>

Nevertheless, that's better than the Master Plan KML files which only have labels like 62436.23535.

Finally, Singstat (www.singstat.gov.sg/statistics/browse-by-theme/geographic-distribution) has useful datasets by geography covering a variety of topics including census figures.

  • All links are 404.

Not sure if you are still on the look out. The data you are requesting for is available in https://data.gov.sg. For infrastructure you may want to look here Infrastructure Data. You can also find the data for transportation and population.
