Who are you and what is your interest in open source spatial

I am young computer literate guy, interested in all new gadgets, Android based products, OSM and Google. I am a cartographer and GIS professional working for Hema Maps in Brisbane. Currently I am responsible for digital map products, app content and assist app development. The GIS/cartography business is using ArcGIS software a lot these days but unfortunately licences can be quite expensive. There are open source software out there but some times they do not fulfil the needs or there is extra coding and R&D involved to get jobs done. I am always keen in trying and finding alternative options without much hassle.

What is your cunning plan for open source spatial in Australia-New Zealand?

Honestly I do not have a plan. I guess to meet new interesting people with similar interests and professions to talk about all sorts of things in the OpenSource world.


Cartographer/GIS professional, interests in GIS, OpenSource and Android OS driven products. Employed with Hema Maps Brisbane.
