The SLIP enabling framework, known as SLIP Enabler, provides the infrastructure required to enable access to the government’s significant land and geographic information resources.
SLIP Enabler is a toolbox that combines infrastructure and services to provide improved access to land information that will support the development of business solutions traversing the traditional single agency boundaries.
SLIP Enabler also provides:
The development of SLIP Enabler was led by Landgate but involved the SLIP focus areas (Emergency Management, Natural Resource Management, electronic Land Development, and Interest Enquiry) as well as agencies seeking to make data available through SLIP and other stakeholders within Government and the WALIS community.
SLIP Enabler forms the foundation of an information connection service, which will allow development of cross-government solutions to meet specific information needs. SLIP is likely to mature into a significant strategic system over a number of years incorporating many business applications and a large number of data sources.
A summary of the features and benefits of SLIP Enabler is outlined below, also refer to the SLIP Enabler Brochure to find out more about how SLIP Enabler can benefit you, or how you can get enabled, today.
SLIP Enabler adopts an approach which uses contemporary internet technology, based on a Services Oriented Architecture, to provide a common approach across government. This provides a single point for applications (web browsers, GIS applications or other business applications) to gain access to land information distributed across many government agencies. Open standards (Open Geospatial Consortium - OGC) are used as the basis for accessing land information, maximising the opportunities for interoperability across platforms and applications.
The SLIP approach has several advantages:
SLIP Enabler enhances the use of spatial information through:
SLIP Enabler was officially launched to the WA business community in September 2008, following its launch to government agencies in August 2007.
During 2008, SLIP Enabler and SLIP have been the recipient of a number of prestigious awards. These include:
SLIP Enabler is now in full production, and is in a constant state of development, adapting to meet the needs of business and the community.
At the end of 2008, more than 1,500 individuals, agencies and businesses have registered and are using SLIP Enabler. The sustainability of SLIP Enabler is ensured via the system being easily extendable to take in more agencies for limited cost and the ongoing development of new business applications. Feedback from the wider spatial industry indicates SLIP Enabler is hitting the target.
Interest in SLIP Enabler is also increasing in the private sector and protocols for private sector involvement have been developed. Interest in being able to offer data or services through SLIP Enabler has also extended nationally.
