Singapore Map from 30 Jan 2010

Welcome to OSM Singapore!

The plan is to start doing a rough island and highways after that clean up the city center a bit and then we see how it goes. We need to do a bit of Johor and bintan/batam also to get a bit of surrounding.

User:Singastreet (using josm) - Working on roads located in western & northern parts of Singapore


User:Singeo - Working on area around East Coast Road/Still Road/Changi Road

User:Raiis2001 - Working on area around West (Bukit Panjang/Bukit Timah/orchard areas..)

User:Harishpillay - Working on forested areas gathered during hhh runs.

Road tagging

  • Using highway = motorway for expressways, i.e. CTE, ECP, PIE, AYE, TPE, KPE, SLE and so on.
  • Using highway = trunk for semi expressways, i.e. Nicoll highway, Outer Ring Road System and West Coast Highway. See picture from wikipedia
  • Using highway = primary for Singapores main roads except when they fall in category trunk (see suggestion of main roads in wikipedia), assume Upper Thomason and Upper Serangoon also fall in this category and probably a few more??
  • Using highway = secondary for other big roads that are not main roads, like Tanglin road
  • Using highway = tertiary for small roads or alleys, usually roads that service HDB estates.
  • Using highway = residential usually for roads that move between "landed properties". Sometimes for roads that connect different HDB clusters. If there are desginated parking lots on one or both sides of the road (some landed properties), see below.
  • Using highway = service & service = parking_aisle when there are parking lots on one or both sides of the road. This does not apply to main roads (such as those along Geylang Road). Use oneway = yes if appropriate. These roads are typically seen in HDB estates.
  • Using highway = service for roads that lead into HDB clusters (without parking on either side) or for roads that serve no purpose other than to physically connect a building or an area to any of the roads mentioned above (e.g. a small driveway that connects a place of worship to the main road)

Use footway = both/left/right on a road way if there is a side walk. Choose the appropriate value.

Roads which are physically segregated in either direction should be a dual carriage way (2 ways going in opposite direction)


HDB Apartments

Multi Storey Carpark


If you want to map the actual buildings within the condominium you refer to "HDB Apartments"
