How to search blocks on map
ZeeMaps have a BUG on maps with more than 7500 pins, the pins get smaller and appear under Google Maps labels thus harder to click, you need to use Search function to get big pins easier to click:
Computer users: click the magnifier in upper-right, phone users: click 3 dots menu > search.
Show all 10,000+ pins with big dots: choose Postal Code > > greater than > 1.
Find a block by number or street name: choose Name > contains > type a block number > map will show all blocks with that number > zoom to desired town.
Show only blocks containing certain flat type: choose Number of units > contains > type “3-room”, “executive”, etc.
Filter blocks that underwent home improvement programme: choose Upgrading programmes > contains > type HIP (or other upgrading programme).
Filter blocks taller than # floors: choose Total floors > Greater than > type a number.
For SERS hunters: only (some of) brown and red blocks (pre-1980) may be selected for redevelopment, do not waste time clicking other colors. There are only 13 different pieces on text under SERS prediction. See also list of potential SERS sites.

The map is powered by HDB Blocks Database, an Excel file compiled by me that took about 500 hours of manual work starting from 2009.
I made the interactive map in September 2017 using Google Fusion Tables, a FREE experimental application that provided only 9 colors of colored dots, as well as other icons representing various businesses. Google announced closure of Fusion Tables on 3 December 2019.
In October 2019 I moved to ZeeMaps, a paid service that provide 31 colors to choose from, and ability to filter and display only blocks of specific criteria. If anyone thinks that is better to use different colors that indicate block types and construction years, please tell.

Please report possible errors on map! (some blocks may have wrong floor plans, being added from my personal research).
