"History of Mapping in Singapore, 1819-2002"

MOK Ly Yng
Mapping & GIS Consultant

Fri 02 Feb 2007: 3.30 - 5.00 pm
Geo Lab (AS2 03-15),

Department of Geography,
National University of Singapore

Ly Yng, a private mapping and GIS consultant, traces the history of mapping in Singapore starting with the arrival of Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles in 1819.

The key periods of map making are demonstrated with selected contemporary maps. Significant historical maps were published by both government and commercial agencies. The presentation concludes with the year 2002, when the first official topographic map of Singapore was published with the new WGS84 based civil mapgrid.
