AAM was recently awarded the highly esteemed Export Award at the Asia Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards (APSEA) for industry leading work to generate a 3D national map of Singapore in support of the city state’s Smart Nation agenda. In 2014 AAM was commissioned to complete this challenging project by the Singapore Land Authority (SLA). According to AAM’s Daniel Kruimel, Business Development Manager Southeast Asia, the work involved in generating Singapore’s 3D digital map can be outlined in three major phases. With Singapore’s dense urban landscape, monsoonal climate and very busy and tightly controlled airspace, this initial phase proved complex and challenging. The Singaporean Government is very vocal with its vision of making Singapore a leading global (and perhaps first) smart nation and the 3D digital map produced by AAM is a key piece of enabling infrastructure to support Singapore’s Smart Nation agenda.
