About[edit]

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.


Resources / Tips[edit]

OpenStreetMap (and geohashing.info) tend to have better detail/labeling of houses and apartment blocks than Google (and the Peeron Map).

The Singapore Government's OneMap service can also be a useful supplemental planning/navigation aid.

Weather forecasts can be found here.
