Terms of use according https://www.onemap.sg/legal/opendatalicence.html
You can use, access, download, copy, distribute, transmit, modify and adapt the datasets, or any derived analyses or applications, whether commercially or non-commercially.

However, because took some time to code scraper and several days of running computer 24/7 to get all data, you are not allowed to distribute or resell my database. You are allowed to use it in your company. If a friend or another company wants to use same data, tell them to buy from me.

History

The database is raw data scraping from OneMap.sg and the map’s raw data does NOT indicated building type. Several people asked me for building type so I am planning to add building type column myself checking manually the map to identify building types. This job will take few dozens hours of manual work and once completed I will sell database at double price. But before investing any more effort in this database I need to secure future updates.

One of my customers who bought HDB Database and Condo Database in August 2017, made a scraping software to get buildings information from OneMap.sg and gave me the CSV data dump (141099 buildings) as “work exchange”, with permission to resell on my website. He did not gave me the scraper, but only data, gave me an update in January 2018 (120508 buildings), I suspected that he missed lots of postal codes, I emailed him to run scraper again, I emailed a week later and he replied that did not had time to run again, and after this he never replied me anymore.

I am looking for someone who can scrap data from OneMap.sg and give me the scraper so I can update database myself in the future. Someone claimed that building type can also be added automatically (how? can machine learning to identify colors on OneMap?) but we did not agreed on price of initial scraper and due to this reason he no longer want to work with me. Can someone else help me?

Update November 2018: an Indian helped me updating Python scraper to work with current version of OneMap, but the script don’t work at my computer for unknown reasons (in his computer it works fine, proved via TeamViewer).

Update July 2019: I found another Indian to fix and run the script, got 141754 buildings. The difference of about 20,000 buildings is because a of couple of entries share same postal code.

Update March 2020: 141726 buildings.

    1. The only option is to buy entire database at $700, I have not added yet building type tag to be able to filter and sell you only residential buildings (I assume that 75% of buildings in database are residential).

      I still hope to find someone else able to help me able to add building type tag, either manually, either find a way to automatize it, so I won’t need to spend 100 hours of my personal time on this project and focus on more profitable projects such as https://www.teoalida.com/cardatabase
