GeoRabble Perth #7 – June 20, 2013

GeorabblePerth_630The next occurrence of Australia’s favourite casual geo-event, Georabble, will occur on 20 June at the Leederville Hotel in Leederville, Perth.

Speakers so far include:

  • Kate Raynes-Goldie
  • Hai Tran
  • Shane French
  • Erwin Vos
  • Liz Marjot

In addition to this line up, the night will feature a mystery speaker, who will remain shrouded in secrecy, wrapped in a riddle, and enclosed in an enigma until a grand revelation on the night. Or something like that.

If you’ve not attended a Georabble before, it’s a fantastic casual night, filled with short, pithy presentations from like-minded geo-types that are free from sales pitches.  With 85 tickets snapped up the remaining 65 FREE tickets have 6 days until the event to find owners.  Click Here to get your ticket!

We’re pleased that AAMGroup have come on board to sponsor the next Perth Georabble, and expect this event with its pizza, beer and awesome will be just as great as all the others.

Dr Ben Guy –¬†Insights into virtual 3d planning

Dr Ben Guy,¬†¬†founder of Brisbane-based infrastructure visualisation company¬†Urban Circus 3D, has demonstrated the power of 3D visuals ¬†to express the narrative of design and data in a clear and compelling manner, to expidites process and “sell the story”. Ben¬†is an ¬†urbanist and environmental psychologist who has worked in the design industry for over 10 years. ¬†Ben’s doctorate is from the UK in place-based urbanism and regenerative planning.


” The problem with planning and managing precincts – from projects to places like cities – can be the fundamental difficulty in common understanding of what everyone is talking about quickly and easily. This is the cause of so many misunderstandings, errors, reworks, redesigns, disappointments, anxieties and construction errors! One of the main reasons is the limitations is using words and line drawings to describe an organic, complex spatial world. When we change that by using tools to help people understand through seeing projects and results move thrice as fast.”

Megan Cope –¬†¬†Maps, aboriginal art & place names

Megan Cope’s work explores notions of environment, identity, geomorphology and mapping; decolonizing methodologies and toponymy are a primary aspect of her practice. A descendant from the Quandamooka region (North Stradbroke Island) in South East QLD, Megan is a member of proppaNOW, the Queensland collective of urban Aboriginal Artists who are making waves in Australia and internationally with their intelligent brash art. Megan has exhibited her works at Australian Embassy in Washington DC, the Koori Heritage Trust in Melbourne, City Gallery in Wellington NZ, Cairns regional art gallery and the 2009 ARC Biennial in Brisbane.

Megan Cope

Megan will take us to an unusual place, melding cartography, toponomy, aboriginal art & place names.
“Toponyms – Place names are an important aspect of culture and¬†identity as they provide location where history, events, landscapes¬†and people are remembered, celebrated and continued.¬†The use of language and basic cartographic¬†symbology reveal a multilayered fluid landscape with dual histories &¬†dual identities.

Simon Elvery

The use of personal geographic data on the¬†social web¬†has¬†excited Simon since the day he discovered he could¬†geotag his photos on Flickr.¬†Entranced by the possibilities exposed by attaching geographic data to online content,¬†Simon strapped a GPS to himself for a year¬†(see more¬†at “All the places I go” ).¬†He provides a fun, different look at the idea of geospatial and a window¬†into the Brisbane Web Design community.
