The Department of Environment, Energy and Climate Action's (DEECA) Web Map Services (WMS) and Web Feature Services (WFS) Open Data services will soon move to a new hosting environment. This will cause a change of URLs when accessing these services.

The old URLs will no longer be available from 27 April 2023, and you must update any existing URLs in your own applications.

Not all the layers currently available will be migrated. To improve the service and data currency, layers derived from a subset of the source dataset will not be supported in the new platform. You will be able to achieve the same result by using a filter in the request for the source dataset.

Please see more details about this migration in the change notices from Vicmap.
