SLIPStream February 2018

SLIP Classic (Enabler) is now retired

All of SLIP’s data and imagery services have now been consolidated on the new Esri-based SLIP.

To find SLIP data:

It’s simple to switch to new SLIP.  You will need to update the URLs in your GIS software. Further information is available at data.wa.gov.au/slip. Please note that the new SLIP services contain all the data that has been previously accessible through SLIP Classic.

For help on using SLIP and supplying data, we have redeveloped the DataWA Toolkit as one place to find all of the help documentation, guides, tips, tricks, and FAQs for using data.

Users can check layer and data service details in the data.wa.gov.au catalogue. For example:

https://catalogue.data.wa.gov.au/dataset/cadastre-polygons-lgate-082

We welcome feedback: if you are experiencing any issues please let us know through our feedback form or contact salesandservice@landgate.wa.gov.au.

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 salesandservice@landgate.wa.gov.au.
