SSSI FireWater Map-a-thon @ webinar
Oct 31 – Nov 1 all-day
SSSI FireWater Map-a-thon @ webinar

The previous Map-a-thon focused on bushfire recovery; this Map-a-thon focuses on bushfire preparedness. During bushfires, firefighters often have difficulty sourcing water. In some regional locations mains water may not be accessible to fight a major bushfire. Static water supplies, such as swimming pools, tanks and dams, are vital sources of water for firefighters. This map-a-thon seeks to map swimming pools, tanks and dams to update Australia’s Static Water Supply System.

The focus area for this Map-a-thon is Kangaroo Island and regional Victoria.

NGIS Australia will be setting up the project sites and will put all the systems in place to make sure the map-a-thon runs as smoothly as before. Nearmap will generously supply high resolution aerial imagery where available. As mentioned previously, the OpenStreetMap (OSM) Platform and Hot Tasker Manager will be used to coordinate the mapping effort.

No matter where you are in the world, you can participate in the SSSI FireWater Map-a-thon. We encourage all participants to register here so you are kept up to date on news, important information such as the training manual and links to the project sites (which will be sent to participants a day prior to the Map-a-thon).

The Map-a-thon will commence at 10am AEDT and will run for 24 hours, to take in to account all time zones. Participate for as long as you like during the 24hrs – there are no time restrictions.

2020 Victorian Spatial Showcase & eSummit @ Webinar
Nov 18 @ 9:00 am – Nov 19 @ 12:00 pm

We are pleased to announce that SSSI will this year be partnering with SIBA|GITA and DELWP to present the 2020 Victorian Spatial Showcase & eSummit. 

This will be held as a special online event over two days in November.

Join us as we bring together government agencies, industry academics and community spatial enthusiasts to connect and learn more about the innovative spatial data, technology and services that Victoria has to offer. On the agenda is a mix of lightning talks and presentations by a diverse range of industry professionals, interactive sessions, networking opportunities and more.

The event is also aligned with World GIS Day, taking place on Wednesday 18 November. GIS Day is a day to help others learn about geography and the real-world applications of GIS that are making a difference in our society, so we hope this event is an apt way for our local GIS heroes to celebrate their day!

Spatially enabling the Sustainable Development Goals

This year, we’re going to tackle some of the world’s most complex problems – our 2020 theme is exploring how the spatial industry is enabling the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through innovation. But what are the SDGs you might ask? The 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all UN Member States in 2015. provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call to action by developed and developing countries across the globe.

During the eSummit, the Victorian spatial community will draw on its collective experience to identify opportunities and challenges for us all to achieve these goals.
