This event brought to you by the Perth GeoRabble team and sponsored our friends @ Spookfish.

What is GeoRabble? 

GeoRabble is about celebrating the every day challenges and triumphs of working with location. Everything from the mundane to the glamorous, whatever gets your GeoRocks off.

We are a group of geo-obsessed people who want to celebrate the real work done by other geo-obsessed people, unfiltered by professional bodies, government and private company agendas and industry politics.

Anything to do with GeoTech, GeoDev, GeoBusiness, GeoTrends, GeoFutures, – you name it, as long as you’re passionate and want to share your challenges, triumphs, frustrations and pride in the work that you do.

GeoRabble is here to connect, inspire and really have some fun with what is the coolest tech around – and if you don’t believe that, then GeoRabble is not for you.

… but if it is then be sure to sign up for one of our coming events!

GeoRabble Rules

The purpose of GeoRabble is to have fun, share and inspire. There are a few simple rules:

  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

Kick-starting GeoRabble was the joint idea of Francisco Urbina, Stephen Lead, Tim Leigh, Brett Madsen, Hugh Saalmans and Maurits van der Vlugt, but we invite anyone and everyone to get on board.

Thinking of starting your own Rabble? It’s easy:

  • GeoRabble events are organised locally
  • Contact the original founders at with your proposed event details
  • Provided the event is consistent with the GeoRabble principles, we will provide you with:
    • Moral support, tips and advice
    • Use of the GeoRabble name and logo for the event
    • Access to the Blog, Twitter and Facebook accounts to help promote your event
    • Access to the Eventbrite account to manage registrations
