Brisbane GIS Day

Brisbane GIS Day 2014, hosted by GIS People on Wednesday 19th November at QUT Gardens Point Campus, has a large number of competitions on offer, including the chance to win $5000 in the HERE-sponsored Map App Hack. To showcase all the competitions held on the day, a new section of the Brisbane GIS Day website has been launched.

Entrants of the Map App Hack can win $5000 if they develop the best ‘map app.’ Sponsored by HERE, this competition challenges individuals or small teams to develop a great entrepreneurial and creative app that makes use of spatial technology and open data on a smartphone app platform.

Also on offer is the Quadcopter competition (organised by CR Kennedy – land close to 3 targets with a model UAV in the shortest time to win high-tech gadgets), the Map Wall (submit your awesome maps), the Multimedia Comp (best Photographer and Videographer on the day will each win $500 worth of vouchers), the Schools Map Comp for kids to submit on the theme ‘Map Your World,’ and multiple easy-to-enter prize draws – just provide your details on the day to win.

Event host GIS People has also been working behind the scenes with the sponsors and exhibitors to develop a great program of talks and demonstrations, to be announced shortly via the Brisbane GIS Day Facebook page and Twitter account.

If you’re keen to attend, you can register for free now.
