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!

Geogeeks Meetup: June hack night

Wednesday, 7 June 2023 at 5:30PM

Riff (Spacecubed), in the 'Town Hall', 45 St Georges Tce, Perth [map]

Come join us for another 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.

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

This event is hosted by Geogeeks Perth (find us at Geogeeks Slack or email), and supported by OSGeo Oceania’s grant program and Spacecubed.
