DATA DOUBLE CONFIRM

OneMap SG Latitude/ Longitude conversion

It's very often to come across datasets from data.gov.sg or open data from Singapore government's portals with X- and Y-coordinates (SYV21 format). This is not very useful as what we need is the latitude and longitude coordinates (WGS84 format) when it comes to a lot of visualization tools.


Discovered the pyproj package that could do the conversion easily. For those facing the same challenge, feel free to refer to the Python code in the notebook here: https://github.com/hxchua/datadoubleconfirm/blob/master/notebooks/OneMapSG_XY_LatLon.ipynb.
