3. Find Your Way To GeoWorks

The workshop is being held at GeoWorks, a co-working space managed by the Singapore Land Authority for geospatial startups. The home of GeoWorks is at the PSA Building.

Follow these steps to get up to Geoworks:

  1. Once you enter the PSA building, go to the self-registration machines next to the security desk and scan your IC (be sure your photo is facing UP)
  2. On the screen, search for Singapore Land Authority. Put in your name and NRIC number and click OK.
  3. When prompted, take your IC and go to the set of elevators on the far left (near the entrance into the ARC), scan your IC and enter the lift lobby
  4. Take a lift up to level seven, smile and wave at anyone inside the glass doors and ask if you could be let in!

Also, it wouldn’t hurt to follow @MaptimeSG on Twitter as well 😉

If you have any trouble with anything, please get in touch with us at hello-(at) and we’ll get Rushan to sort you out right away!

We would also like to thank GeoWorks for providing the space for the workshop!

See you there!
