Question ID: 43404
I would like to get some more satellite photos of Singapore and
Peninsular Malaysia (particulary Johor state) like the one here

They need to be photographic, because I use them to look for details,
and to identify places that would be interesting to mountain-bike or
sail to.  They also need to be recent, because the shape of Singapore
is expanding rapidly with land reclamation, and the sea routes are

Hello Hedin,

The following page collects several high-resolution satellite images
of Singapore

Meteorological Service Singapore - Satellite Images


The following two are a little smaller:

Met. S'pore - GMS Satellite Images

Satellite Image Library of Singapore

However, above image can be ordered on a CD in much higher resolution,

Satellite Image Library - Overview

Please contact Richard Chiles at for further

Also, for another image to buy, see:

Singapore - A Satellite Image From 870 km

(This one costs $20.)

On the following satellite photos, you can click on an area to zoom

Earth View

The next one features "aerial views which allow you to detect objects
on the ground ranging in size from 15 meters to 1,000 meters" that you
can buy:

GlobeXplorer - Regional Level

For more information, contact GlobeXplorer via email at or call 800.417.7808.

---- Lonely Planet

For a more general map, please see:

Lonely Planet - Singapore Map

Lonely Planet - Malaysia Map

Above site also features following information:

Lonely Planet - Travellers' reports on Singapore

I also suggest looking for "johor state" and similar keywords at their
Thorn Tree message board search, revealing many private experiences by

Lonely Planet Search


Also of interest should be the following information on the satellite
picture you linked in your question:

Comments on satellite photo of Singapore of Straits Times Interactive


For general information on mountain-biking in Singapore/ Malaysia:

The Singapore Bike Hash

Singapore Mountain Bike Forum

Note that the following site contains detailed maps, also of Johor
Province, as well as ferry schedules:

Next is a mailing list for personal contacts and trading experiences:

Singapore Mountain Bike Forum Mailing List

Bicycling Malaysia

This one features cycling tours, cycling groups, travel guides and
travel help.

Also interesting is this page, including many personal tips:

And a travel stories page for Malaysia: - Malaysia


Last not least, and always worth a look, is the following service:


Hope this helps, and good luck on your travels!

I'm afraid this answer has gone astray.  I am looking for satellite
images of Singapore and Johor that are as good or better than the
example I linked to.

All of the included links were either offtopic or showed inferior
satellite maps.  I've seen all of these before, anyway.  I am paying
$10 for someone who can search google more cleverly than me to find
better/more images like the one I linked to.

Hello Hedin,

Like I pointed out above, there are several resources where you can
buy the satellite images in a high resolution. Or are you exclusively
looking for free ones? If that is the case and you therefore find the
information given not helpful, I suggest you request a refund and
repost the question with that criteria, since in my extended research
I could not find any free images that are of better resolution than
the ones mentioned.

Again, here is the list of satellite images that you can buy:

Satellite Image Library - Overview 

Singapore - A Satellite Image From 870 km
GlobeXplorer - Regional Level 

Thank you, and best of luck on your quest!

This answer didn't dig up any nuggets, and in fact, it overlooked some
things -- a friend of mine pointed me to several other good links that
weren't in this answer.   Ultimately buying this google answer hasn't
saved me any time or found any treasures.
