Calling all Perth Geogeeks…

Come hack with us!


There's a geospatial revolution happening... whether you're a GIS technician or a software developer, a fluid thermodynamics specialist, an OpenStreetMap fanatic, or just have a burning interest in spatial data, you'll know the last few years have witnessed an explosion in geospatial technology.

Open source software has been a key component of the revolution, and it's at the core of the passion that's driving this group.

We welcome geogeeks from all backgrounds, with any level of experience. You don't need to be a GIS guru or hardcore developer to get involved, you just need to be keen to learn, teach and build, and join the revolution!


Next hack night: Thursday 9 November, 2017. Join us at Spacecubed, starting at .

What's on:

  • QGIS virtual layers
  • More work on Maps for Lost Towns
  • Get started on a new project — creating a shared QGIS resources repository for WA QGIS users.
  • OSM QGIS tutorial-writing.
  • Start on new projects?
  • Show & tell — share what you've been working on, something cool you've seen, something you'd like to dig into!

What is Geogeeks?


Geogeeks is a Perth-based meetup group for people interested in hacking on geospatial projects using (mostly) open source tools and data. We'll be working on anything that involves a sense of place - after all, everything happens somewhere.

All geogeeks are welcome to join our hack nights, from seasoned pros to complete newbs. The objective is to learn, to teach, and to build in a fun & collaborative working environment. Bring along a laptop and ideas for projects to work on.

Hack nights


We meet every second Thursday evening at Spacecubed for a few hours of geogeekery.

It's still early days, but so far, we've already had a hands-on PostGIS workshop, started a substantial project, and helped each other solve some problems.

Over the next few hack nights, we're going to work on our historic maps project, and potentially unearth another project or two to dive into.
