The National Research Foundation announced that Singapore’s S$73 million 3D city model platform will be owned and operated by the Singapore Land Authority when completed. “The NRF unveiled plans for the Virtual Singapore project – one of the projects under the Smart Nation vision outlined by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong – last week.” [See more in this Channel News Asia report dated 1 Dec 2014: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/virtual-singapore-project/1503528.html]
The simulation system “will show virtual 3-D replicas of buildings, roads, trees, carpark lots and other above-ground structures” … “Using the model, the Government can then test-bed solutions and simulations running on top of the map to help tackle liveability issues such as crowd control, flooding and noise levels.” [See more at: http://digital.asiaone.com/digital/news/creating-3-d-map-singapore-2017]
