First Speakers Announced for GeoRabble Sydney #5

We have some great talks lined up for our next Sydney GeoRabble, on Thursday 23 August.

Sponsored by EBR

In a GeoRabble first, Tim Leigh will let the audience choose the topic for his talk. Democracy at its best! Choose anything from Web GIS to Mobile App development or Dog Sledding, and Tim will improvise!

Other Rabblers include:

  • Andrew Harvey – “Open StreetMap, My Story”. Andrew’s short but sweet narrative about his experience with OSM, why he’s contributed, what he’s learnt from it and what he gained from it.
  • Mark Greenway and Kelvin Nicholson – “Happy Mapping”. How their GovHack team created a map of ‘Gross National Happiness’ combining mapping and statistical skills.
  • Stephen Lead – “Mapping the Anzac Diaries”. How the State Library of NSW displays diaries written in the trenches of WW1 in a modern and enticing manner, including placing the diary entries on a map.

There are still speaking slots open. Have something interesting, passionate of fun to share? let us know by emailing sydney@georabble.org.

For this GeoRabble, we are bringing back the free Pizza (thanks to EBR), so don’t miss out! Spaces are limited. Join our Meet-up group, or register here!
