GeoRabble Melbourne Thursday 17 October

GeoRabble returns to Melbourne on Thursday 17 October 2019 at the Imperial on Bourke Street. Networking drinks start at 5:30pm. Presentations commence shortly there after followed by more networking.

Grab yourself a ticket and enjoy the night with friends sharing geospatial ideas, free of sales pitches and hidden agendas! Each presentation is light, relevant to geo-something and only 10 minutes long.


Sylvia Niderla – My job was boring so I automated it (in FME)

Using FME to automate repetitive/manual tasks, replace lengthy scripts and extract CAD files (DGN) to a web mapping application.

Ayeisha Sheldon – My journey as a young Women in Geospatial science 

Ayeisha will highlight key projects she has worked on, lessons learnt and experience gained. These projects include, mapping for disaster reduction within the Asia Pacific and projects while working for the Space Applications Section at the United Nations ESCAP.

Dayna Hayman – The power of visualisation

Coming from a visual design background, Dayna has a great appreciation for the ways in which good visualisations are an indispensable tool to help teams understand content and reflect on their experiences. In this talk, Dayna will discuss how she has used graphic live-scribing in highly technical workshops, and the unique value that it has delivered in these contexts.

Kate Williams – Fishermans Bend Digital Twin Demonstrator Project

Victoria’s first digital twin project for urban planning will demonstrate the digital future of our cities through the application of state-of-the-art planning and mapping technology to visualise Fishermans Bend, Australia’s largest urban renewal project, covering 485 hectares in the heart of Melbourne and soon to be home and workplace for over 80,000 people. Kate will share the scope of the demonstrator project, and discuss key learnings from the first 4 months of this initiative.
