Event Details

The Christmas season is fast approaching and GeoRabble Brisbane is having its next event on Tuesday the 8th of December. We'd like to invite you all to celebrate the Christmas season the spatial way at the Pig N Whistle (Riverside).

We have confirmed four speakers ...

  • Brett Leavey - is bringing his Aboriginal cultural heritage app on an Oculus Rift device
  • Jonathan Corcoran - Jonathan is an Associate Professor at UQ School of Geography, Planning and Environmental Management. He'll be discussing some analysis he's been doing on smart cards (GoCards) - visualising the effect of weather on bus transit in Brisbane.
  • Matthew Fry -Constantly evolving societal expectations of technology have pushed the use of spatial applications into areas not traditionally seen as being part of the spatial fabric.  Matthew will present on one of these new areas, tagged GeoDesign, where urban developers and landscape architects meet head on with spatial technologies to deliver interactive models for public use.
  • Tim Foresman - Tim is a world leader in the spatial industry and is currently the SIBA Chair in Spatial Information at QUT.  Having previously worked with organisations such as NASA, the U.S. EPA and the UN, Tim will be coming along to GeoRabble to share his knowledge and insights into innovation and the creation of a spatial industry cluster for Brisbane.
