If you opt to sign up to a SLIP subscription service, you will need to choose from one or more of the imagery options below, depending upon your organisation’s requirements.
This base layer imagery is a whole of state layer, configured as a flattened and seamless single service. It can be used as a background in conjunction with other data services to provide a spatial reference and contains the most current 1:100,000 aerial imagery tiles, aboriginal community, regional, and town site mosaics.
The Perth Metro service has recently combined Perth’s bi-annual capture (Perth2) and quarterly capture (Perth4) imagery services into a single service. It provides Perth metropolitan aerial imagery as individual mosaics from 1947 through to the present day.
Perth was captured annually until 2010, became bi-annual in 2011 and then quarterly in 2015, reverting to a bi-annual program in 2018. Imagery captured prior to 2007 has been converted from individual, analogue frames to seamless digital orthorectified mosaics. The scan resolution equates to approximately 20cm GSD.
The ground resolution of our digitally captured imagery varies between 10 and 15cm GSD.
NB: not all imagery captured prior to 2000 is currently available in this service; it is being added progressively over time and made available at no additional cost to the subscriber.
This service provides access to all available regional imagery as separate layers from 1987 to the current year. This includes the most current 1:100,000 aerial imagery tiles, aboriginal community, regional, and town site mosaics.

Guidelines for access to aerial imagery for value added resellers
Due to the nature of aerial imagery and the market for its supply, usage must be acceptable to Landgate and specified within a licence before access and pricing is provided.
- Generally, Landgate will allow access to imagery where it will not be used as the primary focus of a derived product. Where the focal point of a VAR’s product is in providing functionality, information or a solution to a problem and aerial imagery is merely providing a supplementary visual reference/backdrop, it will be considered favourably.
- Where the selling point of a VAR’s product is the actual aerial imagery, with added functionality considered secondary or an enhancement to the imagery, then Landgate will not provide imagery access.
- Where a VAR creates a product that will have users frequently consuming large amounts of imagery (within the SLIP environment), resulting in degraded performance for other subscribers. In these instances, Landgate may look to provide the imagery via an alternative channel.
