Melbourne Open GIS April 2013 Meetup

Melbourne Open GIS is on again at 6pm on Wednesday the 17th April at the OpenHub.

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.

This meetup’s presentations:

  • Craig Molyneux (Spatial Vision)
  • Nathan Woodrow (QLD, Digital Mapping Solutions)
  • Craig Butt (The Age)
  • and more...

If you've got something you’d like to show to the group in under five minutes, contact a group organiser to request a presentation slot.

Our new five-minute presentation format from our last meetup was well received, so we'll continue with that - five minutes presentation, plus five minutes Q&A. This format makes for more enjoyable evening, with enough time for a variety of content, reduce the need for speakers to prepare elaborate presentations, and finish in time to deliver us all to the pub for a meal afterwards.

Our sponsors will provide a mixture of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

This meetup’s sponsors (so far):

  • Geoplex
  • Groundtruth
  • OpenHub

We are seeking additional sponsors. Please contact a group organiser to express your interest and get your business’s name added to the event publicity, and don’t forget to bring along your slab. (Half-slab sponsorships are available to government and non-commercial entities.)


  • Who can attend: anyone (limited to the first 50 to RSVP)
  • RSVP: required, via Meetup
  • Time:  arrive at 6:00pm for drinks and networking before the presentations commence at 6:30pm
  • Twitter Hashtag: #MelbOpenGIS
  • Parking info:

    Marco, the links to the server - and TileMill projects - are behind a username and password, so unfortunately I can't give you the links. Instead, I've created a github page with the TileMill projects I've created and am happy to share the contents for others to use. You can access the Melbourne Street Art map here

      Yeah, what's up with that? In my experience geography and cartography aren't so gender-segregated.

    Who was the person At the meetup who talked about looking for collaboration partners? Depending on the level of skills desired, I might be interested in finding out more about what they were trying to achieve.
