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!

Social Mapping Sunday: Hyde Park II

Sunday, 02 June 2024 at 10:00AM (to 1:00PM)

Meeting Place, Hyde Park, Vincent St x Throssell St, Perth [map]

Join us for a coffee and an exploration of the eastern side of Hyde Park. Last year we have mapped the western side, so let’s finish mapping the park before some of the beautiful trees need to be felled.

Everyone is welcome, no experience necessary. We’ll start the day at the kiosk on west side of Hyde park, then survey the park or the nearby shopping strips (in groups or all together), before ending up somewhere else for lunch (location TBD on the day).

Add and update Points of Interest (POIs) on your phone, draw on a printed map. We’ve got all the materials, come down and learn about OSM.

We’ll do a coffee/snack run, sponsored by OSGeo Oceania!

Message Ben with any questions, and join the Geogeeks Slack to keep in touch.
