The Shared Location Information Platform - otherwise known as SLIP - is an open data platform for Western Australia. It is an open data platform for location-based information coordinated by Landgate through the WALIS partnership. SLIP delivers data to users through services, including mapping platforms such as Locate, and OGC compliant web services that can be used through geographic information systems.
Thousands of datasets can be accessed through SLIP via a wide range of maps. Most of the data can be viewed directly by everyone through public maps. A small number of datasets are restricted for use between agencies under arrangements set out in the Western Australian Whole of Government Open Data Policy.
Some data is available only by subscription. As a UWA student or staff member you are entitled to use the datasets to which UWA has subscribed - see UWA Packages below. To register as a UWA user and get access to the extra datasets, follow the instructions below.
