Hi Tim

I have the latest version of QGIS (3.0.0 – Girona) and can’t find the plugin?

Is the plugin available for this version of QGIS yet?

Chris I don’t know anything about what is going on at SG but I can say we updated our SG Downloader QGIS plugin to work with the recent changes. Just search from in the QGIS plugin manager for:

SG Diagram Downloader
A tool for QGIS that will download SG (South African Surveyor General) diagrams.

You need to have a parcels layer which contains SG cadastral ID’s for the plugin to work, so I don’t know if it is going to be useful for you or not.

A follow up ,

Apart from the one reply from Nic from 1MAP there has been no answer to my original post.

I have again attempted to access the SG website to view spatial data -- with the same error message and non-access.

Surely someone must know what is going on at trhe SG offices ?

Is the whole SG web ecosystem being re moulded  ?

Something to do with the R50Million tender to ESRI SA and  AGIZO Solutions for the ....

National Spatial Planing Data Repository ( NSPDR )

SPIsys appears to be still up and runing ?
( However a request for registration there has gone unanswered for two weeks now ? )
