Geogeeks Perth


Geogeeks is a Perth meetup group having fun with open geospatial, open source GIS, and OpenStreetMap.

We're running a series of meetups and events to bring the Perth community together, and shine a light on what's happening in open geospatial. Think QGIS, PostGIS, OpenStreetMap, geospatial Python, and much more.

Upcoming events include guest speakers, mapathons, and technical workshops. Everyone welcome!

Upcoming events


Geogeeks Meetup: drone setup, OpenDroneMap, and OpenStreetMap as a database…

Thursday, 13th October at 5:30 – 8:00 p.m.

The Vault, at Riff (Spacecubed), 45 St Georges Tce, Perth [map]

Join us for an evening of talks and skill sharing with the Perth open geospatial community!

We’ll be guided through drone setup, data capture and data processing using OpenDroneMap by experienced drone operator, Grant Boxer. Don’t miss this opportunity to ask all your drone questions!

Ben Ritter will share tips on approaching OpenStreetMap as a powerful database, including querying with Overpass QL tools (within QGIS or via http). Come learn about OSM as more than just a base map!

This is a relaxed free evening for anyone who’s interested in open geospatial tools, open data and open source projects. Come to learn something new, share ideas and gather some tips! There’ll be plenty of time to chat over drinks and pizza.

Our speakers are:

  • Grant Boxer: Drone setup, data capture and processing in OpenDroneMap
  • Ben Ritter: OpenStreetMap as a database: querying with Overpass QL, populating with a phone

Please register so we can cater well. We look forward to seeing you there!

The Riff doors will lock and the Vault room doesn’t have great phone reception so message us on the Geogeeks Slack or email if you can’t get in.

Register now!
