GeoRabble Perth #3 Announced!

Having had a strong showing at the last Perth Georabble, the middle of the year calls another night out for GeoBeer, GeoTalks, GeoDiscussion and GeoRabble.
With a good shortlist of speakers, and a discussion panel on the use of data warming up in the wings, the venue organised, now is the time to get your tickets.

GeoRabble Perth #3

Wednesday July 25
Doors open 5.30pm, talks from 6.15pm
Trappist on King
Cnr King & Murray Sts Perth
Perth, Western Australia 6000
This time in a very special GeoRabble first, we’re going to use half the night in an open panel discussion.  What are we talking about? The amount of effort versus return?  Poor quality data in, can only result in bad decisions?  Or can we create silk purses from hogs ears? Perfection in information is a matter of definition as rubbish data can still be perfect for specific situations, depending how it is used and what it is used for.
Help us and the panel put fact before fiction – perhaps!

Expanding Geo-Horizons

Stimulating the geo minded people in Western Australia is not a hard thing. We are blessed with great weather, fantastic opportunities and a community that is strong and vibrant. One might say that there isn’t a geo-person who isn’t more than 1 or 2 links away from another geo person.  In recent years a foreshadow has crept into the community where too often we hear comments stating it is the same people, the same technologies always presenting and promoting the industry.

GeoRabble aims to challenge that concept where like minded people (geo or other) can get together and celebrate the ideas, the innovations and yes even the ‘weird’ where corporations, brands are not the highlight of the show. It is perhaps with this last thought the reason why the inaugural GeoRabble for Perth sold out in record time.

Short, sharp interesting presentations is the name of the game for GeoRabble and the first Georabble (only a few days away now) has organised a great line-up of speakers.

  • Maurits van der Vlugt (The origins of GeoRabble)
  • Nicholas Flett (Imposing Order Onto Chaos – human beings perceiving a living world)
  • John Roberts (Mapping Land Disturbance in Rangelands via Photogrammetry)
  • Tom Brownlie (GIS is dead)
  • Drew France (The Cholera Epidemic – A spatial review)
  • Steve Snow (Looking at LiDAR)

GeoRabble Perth looks to be a fantastic night on the 8th of November (the Generous Squire, Perth) with a full house and food proudly put on by Gaia Resources we look forward to seeing you there.

p.s. There will be a door prize of a free ticket to the first GeoRabble Melbourne event scheduled for the 9th of November (you have to make your own way there). After all, we in Western Australia have never shied away from helping other states with their events. 🙂
