Multiple government agencies in Western Australia need to easily share spatial information for environmental mapping, cadastre, infrastructure, engineering, agricultural and emergency services, while minimising the duplication of resources.
Landgate is responsible for coordinating the supply of data across government, while minimising the duplication of resources by collecting location data once, then sharing that data across all Western Australia state government departments and agencies.
To address this need, Landgate developed a platform called the State Land Information Capture Program (SLICP), for which they needed a high quality foundation dataset.
SLICP provides Western Australian government departments and agencies with a single point to access and purchase high quality location information and spatial data. The flexibility of SLICP means Landgate can capture and process data and deliver it in the most cost effective and timely manner. This avoids duplication of data capture and reduces cost to government through a system that delivers the information through one channel – ensuring the most strategic use of resources and driving effective decision making.
