I am looking for providers of 3D maps/models of Singapore.

This might be either from photogrammetry/laser techniques or based on a DEM + building footprints/landuse with a height attribute.

Is any such data available either in public repositories or from specialized companies?


Well this is almost certainly against Google's Terms of Service, so I'm definitely not recommending it, but I found an interesting method of extracting Google Earth building models to OBJ files here: Google Earth to OBJ Using GLIntercept

If you can wait, the Singapore Land Authority is reportedly in the process of developing a 3D togographic dataset. I found a specifications document here. They also have 2D data available here.

  • thanks; but google earth is currently failry limited on Singapore 3D buildings. – Pascal Mar 20 '14 at 9:34
  • SLA indeed recenlty filled a tender for their 3D topographic model. – Pascal Mar 20 '14 at 9:35
