Satellite image of Singapore

Image of the month / PlanetSAT Global imagery basemap

Located at the southern end of the Malaysian peninsula, Singapore consists of one main island called Pulau Ujong (585 sq km) and 62 islets. While being extremely urbanized and densely populated, the main island enjoys an abundant vegetation, even right in the city center. This is partially due to the equatorial climate of the region, being hot and humid all year long. There is also a true local commitment to keep the city green despite urbanization. Singapore is also called the “garden-city” as it offers 4 Nature Reserve, 59 Regional Parks and 271 Neighbourhood Parks!

Singapore Changi airport, on the eastern side of the main island, is considered as one of the World’s Best Airport, while being also one of the world’s busiest airports by international passenger and cargo traffic. On the south-west coast is the port of Singapore, currently the world’s second-busiest container port, just after Shanghai. The satellite image shows lots of ships cruising or lying at anchor outside the Port of Singapore.

This satellite image of Singapore comes from PlanetSAT Global imagery basemap. It has been processed with Landsat 8 source data at 15-meter resolution.
