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:
- Celebrate each others’ triumphs
- Respect each others’ choice – no technology bigotry
- No sales pitches – this includes services, software, data, etc.
- No company logos or ‘about us’ slides
- 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.
