First Speaker confirmed for GeoRabble Sydney and Invitation to Rabblers for your stories

Our first GeoRabble Sydney for 2015 is all systems go with registration coming in fast.

It is a great sign that the topic of Open GeoSpatial Data is something that resonates with many of us and impacts the work that we do.

Which why it is great that we have Krissie Auld from the Office of Environment and Heritage talking about ‘Open OEH’ and with OEH being such a huge generator and custodian of spatial data it will be great to hear about their efforts.

We are confirming more speakers but still have room for a few more, so if you have a story on the success, uses, failure, frustrations or just want to highlight your dramas with trying to get access to open geospatial data, this is the forum for you.

Submit your short description to sydney@georabble.org and remember that your presentation is  limited to 10 minutes to make sure the heart of your message is delivered

Don’t forget to register here, or join our Meetup group!

If you just want to share your story on the use of geo in your day to day experience feel free to submit as well as we are always looking for fun, interesting and surprising geo related presentations

Looking forward to sharing a great night with you all.
