Data Custodians are required to complete and submit Part A documentation for a new dataset (one Part A per layer).
Part A forms need only be provided for each dataset and not the possibly several “presentation profiles” for each dataset, except, in special cases, where a presentation profile of a particular dataset is also a “derived” dataset or product in its own right. This is the decision of the custodian.
Custodian Agencies must compile datasets in the appropriate format, refer to Part A template for SLIP supported formats.
Application specific information may be required where datasets are to be made available to other applications (for example, Interest Enquiry System) - agencies should consult with SLIP GIS Support if this is the case.
