GeoRabble Melbourne Thursday 12 March 2020

Come one come all, its time to bring the rabble together for another Melbourne GeoRabble.

GeoRabble returns to Melbourne on Thursday 12 March 2020 at Cooper Inn on the corner of Little Lonsdale and Exhibition Street. Networking drinks start at 5:30pm. Presentations commence shortly there after followed by more networking.

Tickets are available online– note space is limited – 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.


Leila H.Mirkalaei – Integration of cadastral survey information into BIM

Along with the growth in 3D cadastre, lack of survey information and 2D observations have existed with the current BIM applications. During the 3D building formation procedure, the survey information and 2D observations are only used for cadastral registration and have not been included in BIM.

Sylvia Niderla – The Joys of Mentoring in a Sh*tty World

My experiences with mentoring a GIS Graduate in the SSSI mentoring program 2018 – experiences and lessons learnt.

Dr Jon Stanger – MAGNM – A novel approach to validating and managing networked assets.

Multiple highly interconnected networks (infrastructure, cabling, logical, bearer) can be modelled using classical graphs (mathematical structures that model pairwise object relationships) with Multi-axis Graph Network Model (MAGNM) representation utilizing open source GIS libraries and software.

Mina Jahanshahi – 99 Bluetooth Ballons

If an artist can take a little red cart of phones around Berlin to hack a Google traffic jam, who else or what else will be disrupting our data sources in the future? While we’re hacking away at making our own data, who else is counter-hacking it? How much are we relying on non-standard data sources for our inputs and where should we be trying to find data governance? Interactive talk- for every buzzword I use I ask you to heckle me with a hiss.

Natalie Scott: Lights and Sirens: Building a network for fire appliances

We use networks to answers questions about how long it takes to get somewhere, or how far we can go within a set time. While we are accustomed to being able to answer these questions for cars, how do you go about building a suitable network for a fire appliance? I’ll be talking about some of the different approaches we’ve used, and why it matters.

More speakers to be announced soon. 

If you have a great geospatial idea that you would like to share with a group of like-minded people, we want to hear from you for the next GeoRabble! Contact the GeoRabble committee to express your interesting topic in 20 words or less, or email your idea to

We would like to thank our sponsor LandSurveys without which we could not hold this event. Thanks!
