A memorandum of understanding (MOU) was inked between Ordnance Survey (OS) and the Singapore Land Authority (SLA) to drive geospatial innovation in Singapore and the United Kingdom (UK). The signed MOU which will see both organisations intensify focus on the promotion and use of geospatial information to support smart services and solutions which aim to benefit citizens, communities, business and government. Building on the current, longstanding and strong relationship between OS and SLA, the MOU will support both parties in exploring new collaborations. For example, the OS and SLA aim to jointly hold events between OS’ Geovation and SLA’s GeoWorks, Singapore’s new geospatial industry centre for start-ups, companies and interested communities in both the UK and Singapore. Another key focus of the MOU is the co-development of a proposal for autonomous vehicles, exploring data capture, data processing and standards.
