Do you have any idea for a repository of readily available shapefiles for Singapore, specifically slope.

  • Slope is usually depicted with raster, not vector format like shapefile. Do you mean countour lines (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contour_line)?

You can download Digital Elevation Model (DEM) From Earth Explorer - USGS, using this DEM Raster (cell size usually 30m) you can extract slope as a raster and then convert it into shapefile.

  • Thanks dude. I guess i have no choice but to process a DEM. Just thought someone know some readily available data. nonetheless thank you

  • @rodel What format do you want the data in? Something like GRASS or qgis should be able to convert between formats easily.
