The Singapore/Johor Bahru graticule is at latitude 1, longitude 103. It covers most of Singapore except for Pulau Tekong and some reclaimed land east of Changi Airport. It also encompasses parts of Johor, Malaysia, such as Johor Bahru and Pasir Gudang, and portions of the Indonesian Riau islands.
About half of the graticule is composed of land; the rest is made up of the Straits of Singapore and the Straits of Malacca.
