WA Boosts US$23mil GIS Project
The government of Western Australia is fast-tracking investments in geographic information systems (GIS) under moves to make state-wide land and resources information more readily available for end-users, businesses and agencies.
An award-winning Shared Land Information Platform (SLIP) is being upgraded with the expanded use of spatial technology. This upgrade makes location-based knowledge easier to access, share and use across the state.
The SLIP initiative is administered by Perth-based Landgate, a statutory authority that maintains land ownership and survey information, as well as the valuation of land and property interests.
