Melbourne Open GIS September 2011 Meetup

The Melbourne Open GIS event is on again at 6pm on Thursday the 29th of September at the OpenHub. Arrive after 6:00pm for a 6:30pm start.

Presentations will include:

  • Roald de Wit (Bureau of Meteorology) - Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial Conference (FOSS4G2011) Denver debrief
  • Simon Hope (Geoplex) - 'Brewing maps with TileMill'
  • Ben Hosken (Flink Labs) - interactive data visualisation
  • Simon Cropper (Botanicus) - natural resource mapping
  • Denise McKenzie (DSE) - Vicmap API

Melbourne Open GIS is a forum to discuss open technology, standards and interoperability in GIS. Our meetings bring together professionals from geospatial and other disciplines in a casual environment for some presentations, informal discussions, socialising and some drinks supplied by our meeting sponsors.

We are seeking sponsors for our event. As well as our invited speakers, other organisations or individuals who bring a slab will have 5 minutes to present on a topic of their choice. (Blatant advertising will result in being sent to the bottle shop to purchase another slab.) Half-slab sponsorships are available to government and non-commercial presenters. Contact the group's organisers to register your interest.


  • Who can attend: anyone (limited to the first 50 to RSVP)
  • RSVP: required, via Meetup

    Wasn't sure if i was watching Karl Pilkington on Daniel Kitson, turned out to be some crazy nut called mapbutcher. Agree maybe too many presentations for one night - having meetups more frequent might help.

    Presentations went for too long (should be strictly capped at 10 min). But otherwise, it was a quality meetup. Looking forward to the next one.
