Satellite image of Singapore City, 9th August 2000

Category : internet

It's old news, perhaps, but Singapore City was featured in Space Imaging.com's Top 10 images - 2001 gallery. The image is a 'one-meter resolution color image of the city of Singapore collected on August 9, 2000 by Space Imaging's IKONOS satellite.'

"The image depicts the trade and administration centers located between the mouth of the Singapore River and Canning Hill. Included in the image are the Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Center, the War Memorial Park, and the famous Raffles Hotel. Between the St. Andrew's Cathedral and the river lay the historical buildings of Singapore including City Hall, the Supreme Court, and the Parliament House. ... Credit: "Space Imaging / Centre for Remote Imaging, Sensing and Processing (CRISP) - Singapore"" (NUS).

In the 300dpi, 2500 x 2200 pixel photo they provide, you can see old and new buildings side by side, the Esplanade under construction and the Starhub blimp. There are other images you can look out for, like this one from 2nd May 2003.

The area depicted in this screen capture below is reflected in this streetdirectory.com map.
