With spatial industry giants sponsoring and exhibiting, the GIS Day demonstrations and presentations will excite business leaders and the public alike with the possibilities offered by the current spatial technology boom.
An annual event, International GIS Day showcases the increasingly relevant world of GIS technology to a wide audience. Brisbane GIS Day is unique because of its size, scope, and all-inclusive informal atmosphere.
