Supporting start-ups and entrepreneurs

Are you building, or planning to build, a new application that uses government data or technology? Landgate’s SPUR can help you. We support the development and growth of innovative location based solutions.

Access to data

SPUR is your gateway to a wide-range of location and government data via the Shared Location Information Platform (SLIP) and the Open Data portal.

Get in touch with us early in your project to sample Landgate datasets, ranging from property and sales data, to satellite and aerial imagery. We also offer developer’s licences to help you in the early stages of your commercial venture. This licence provides access to commercial datasets to help you build and test ideas in the market before proceeding to a commercial data licence.

Want to find out what data is available? Contact us or find out more about SLIP and Open Data.

SPURonWA grant

If you’re developing the next innovative location-based application you can apply for a SPURonWA grant. These grants will be offered through a competitive application process. Grant funding can be used to help with the costs of developing your ideas.

Register or follow us on Facebook or Twitter today to receive updates about SPURonWA grants.

Ideation and 'hack' events

SPUR participates in many events, including GovHack, HackEd, HealthHack and Unearthed. Ideation events are a great way to collaborate with people to create new solutions to problems.

SPUR supports ideation and facilitates other industry focussed innovation events by providing access to data and other resources. Check out the program of future ideation events and get involved. If you have an event we should know about, let us know so we can spread the word.

Commercial partnerships

SPUR, powered by Landgate, pursues new business partnerships and alliances with a focus on location-based products and services. We have a history of successfully collaborating with other organisations locally, nationally and internationally such as earthmine Australia and IndoFire.
