You can be forgiven for thinking that of all the state capitals, Sydney is the sleepy hollow of GIS location innovation and associated events. For a while, Sydney had Ignite Spatial, but that quietly went away, as did the SSI Young Spatial Professionals events.
However, for some reason the planets seem to align this March and April and there are a raft of interesting (and informal) geo-events on the agenda:
- 9 March: GITA GIS drinks with Neatstreets' Neil Kuruppu (FREE EVENT)
- 16 March: SSSI twilight seminar: "The Fire Season 2011 - and what it means to you"
- 16 March: Inaugural GeoRabble evening: "An open and inclusive forum for GeoGeeks to share, inspire and have fun" (FREE EVENT)
- 22 March:
- 10-15 April: "34th International Symposium on Remote Sensing of Environment"
- 13 April: SSSI twilight seminar: "An Introduction to Mashups - Ad Hoc Mapping"
Not bad huh? I will be at the inaugural GeoRabble event on the 16th, which promises to be something new, fun and exciting.
See you there!
