Brisbane GIS Day

Brisbane GIS Day 2014, to be hosted by GIS People on Wednesday 19th November at QUT Gardens Point Campus, is well on the way to becoming the ‘biggest GIS Day event in the world.’

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.

Technologies on show will include Google Glass, the Worldview-3 satellite, and 3D printing, along with talks from expert speakers and free competitions to win high-tech gadgets. With attendees including spatial professionals, students, local dignitaries, and mining, energy, financial, government and educational giants, it will be a great opportunity to network and expand knowledge of the latest advances in the industry.

Additionally, the newly announced ‘Map App Hack’ will challenge creative types to develop an innovative spatial app that must make use of spatial open data on a smartphone platform. The winners will receive prizes, product exposure, and networking opportunities.

The event sponsors include Dialog Google Enterprise Practice as Platinum sponsor, and QUT and DMS/Chartis Technology as Gold sponsors. DigitalGlobe has just been announced as the sponsor of QUT’s Cube, which will give attendees the opportunity to discover and visualise awe-inspiring imagery and data in a brand new way.
