FINAL REMINDER: SLIP Classic shutting down on 31 January 2018
This is a final reminder that SLIP Classic data services are shutting down from Wednesday 31 January 2018.
Any customers still using SLIP Classic or WMTS services are kindly asked to start using new SLIP right away. Thank you to those who have already made the switch.
For those yet to migrate, please note that the new SLIP services contain all the data that has been previously accessible through SLIP Classic.
There is more information about the full list of subscription Landgate data services and maps available through SLIP on the Landgate website.
Users can check layer and data service details in the data.wa.gov.au catalogue. For example:
For most customers the change will involve simply changing URLs in your GIS software. We've made it easier to find any help users need via the SLIP migration page and in the new DataWA Toolkit – there are how-to guides and videos on loading data services.
For customers with more complex needs the SLIP team can provide support, please email email@example.com or phone +61 (0)8 9273 7683 for support.
For Esri users: Esri token security services will be released over the coming months. If you would like to start connecting to these services now, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
To find out more about service migration to the new SLIP platform, please visit data.wa.gov.au to download the latest information sheet (PDF 514KB). The document is also available via the DataWA Toolkit.
