Maps of Singapore Waters, past and present

Category : marine

"Singapore Waters" was published by the NSS Marine Conservation Group in 2003.

Within the book are two maps that indicate the extent of marine ecosystems and reclamation in Singapore Waters in the 1950's and 2002.

It is a useful teaching tool and NSS Marine Conservation Group's Leong Kwok Peng allowed us to feature these photos. A slightly larger 640 x 465 photo of the marine ecosystem maps and other marine images can be downloaded from the Singapore Waters gallery.

If you need anything better, you'll have to buy the book which is retailing for about $50 (see The Botanic Gardens Shop (Nature's Niche) or Select Books.

See also: Vegetation maps of Singapore, circa 1819 and c. 1990, from the Guide to the Mangroves of Singapore, 1999.
