Superimposing 1945 images from National Archives of Singapore (NAS) with Google Earth Maps of 2022 on the request of Nature Society, SIngapore Mr. Leong Kwok Peng. This 1945 topographical map of Singapore island is one of the rare few produced by Indian military surveyors following the return of the British to Singapore after the Japanese surrender. The map’s distinctive color schemes, with areas of farmland marked in bright yellow, followed the survey of India standard colours. Local food production was vital for the plans of returning British administrators to rehabilitate Singapore, which had suffered greatly during the occupation.
