GeoRabble Sydney – The Unusual Suspects

By on 2 October, 2018

GeoRabble

GeoRabble Sydney happens again on October 18, and seeks to celebrate unusual, unsuspected, and surprising applications of geoinformation and technology.

The organisers are seeking speakers for this event — those with a story to tell about the weirdest, wildest and most out-there applications of spatial tech and practice in under ten minutes.

They suggest examples like GPS for cattle herding, photogrammetry in health, GIS on Mars, new uses for drones — but we’re sure you can get weirder than that.

All pitches and speed presentations must abide by the usual GeoRabble rules, however:

  1. Celebrate each others’ triumphs
  2. Respect each others’ choice – no technology bigotry
  3. No sales pitches – this includes services, software, data, etc.
  4. No company logos or ‘about us’ slides
  5. Keep it short – 10 minutes per talk

The event will happen at the Occidental Hotel on Thursday October 18 from 6pm, and registrations are now open.
