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

Social Mapping Sunday: Lake Leschenaultia

Sunday, 26th March at 10:30AM

Reflections Café, Lake Leschenaultia (near Chidlow) [map]

For our first Geogeeks mapping day out in 2023, we’re heading to Lake Leschenaultia in the Perth hills! Everyone’s invited, it doesn’t matter how familiar you are with OpenStreetMap — we’ll help you get set up with apps, accounts, etc.

Meet at Reflections Café at 10:30 for coffee and to discuss mapping, then we’ll spend a couple of hours mapping the area in small groups, and meet up again for lunch.

We’re organising carpooling, and will pick people up at Midland, Cannington, or Claisebrook stations (and probably elsewhere). Get in touch if you want a lift.

Join us on Slack to stay up to date, and to coordinate things. Please RSVP here so we have an idea of numbers (and if you don’t want to use Slack, we’ll contact you via the OSM messaging system).

Refreshments are generously sponsored by OSGeo Oceania.

Geogeeks Hack Night

Wednesday, 5th April at 5:30PM

Riff (Spacecubed), in the Vault, 45 St Georges Tce, Perth [map]

Join us for a casual open geospatial hack night! Bring your projects, your challenges and ideas! All skill levels and areas of interest are welcome.

Come to share skills, solve problems and gather inspiration. There’s no planned structure and everyone is free to chat (or sit and get something done!). There’ll be people with interests in OpenStreetMap, all things QGIS, data collection and processing, and many other aspects of geospatial. Bring your laptop/devices if you wish.

Pizza and drinks are provided. Please register so we can cater well :)

The meetup is in the Vault room, so head right to the back of Riff. Phone reception is bad in the Vault so please use Geogeeks Slack or email to reach us if there’s no one by the front door.
