This would facilitate a move towards an integrated business model across the Local Government Authorities (LGAs) as suggested in the WA Government’s Location Information Strategy (2010).
It will also allow the creation of a single, publicly accessible web portal, improving community service while also increasing council efficiency.
Through this project the PRC developed a comprehensive list of GIS data vendors operating in WA and their available dataset.
It was determined that the most suitable system was Landgate’s Shared Land Information Platform (SLIP) subscription service. This system is already available at commercially advantageous terms for the LGAs.
The PRC also analysed each individual LGA GIS ‘ecosystem’, and is preparing a report for submission to member Local Governments to be ratified.
