The State Land Information Capture Program (SLICP) is designed to reduce cost and avoid duplication in spatial data capture across the state of Western Australia by planning, recording and acquiring the information through one channel to ensure the most strategic use of resources.
The program runs annually (by financial year - July 1 to 30 June cycle) and is scheduled eighteen months in advance due to significant planning overheads.
Data captured through the SLICP can range from aerial photography, topographic data, satellite imagery, bathymetry, LIDAR, infrastructure, to 3D surveys, soils, ortho-imagery and any other type of spatial data required. The data requested through SLICP provides an opportunity to drive decision making on important issues such as climate change, planning, mining and health.
Landgate has both simplified the SLICP process and is seeking to expand the capabilities and funding of SLICP to address the future needs of the state’s land and spatial information.
WALIS would greatly appreciate you completing this survey to give us some information about how you are currently using aerial imagery, and what your business needs over the next 3-5 years are. Information in this survey will complement other research and investigation projects to underpin future State Land Information Capture Program activities, and help guide decision making around digital capture services. This will enable us to specify and activate the right contracts and tenders to deliver a fit for purpose service to WALIS users.
It is a lengthy and technical survey, and we would appreciate as much information as you have time to offer. Two submissions will be randomly drawn to receive one of Landgate’s Earth is Art unframed prints (of the winner’s choice). For further information please contact Paul Duncan at Landgate.
Please fill out the SURVEY at your soonest convenience, with last submissions accepted for the draw on Monday 5 January 2009.
