Geospatial Information Competition

SSSI is very proud to partner with Destination Spatial on presenting the Geospatial Information Competition.

This competition asks students from grades 7 – 10 across the country to identify a challenge in their local area or community and to use geospatial information and technologies to help address or solve that challenge. The topics that students can cover are almost endless – essentially if the problem can be linked to the earth in some way it is a spatial problem and students can address it in the competition.

The winning student/s receive registration to attend the Australia’s largest surveying and spatial conference, Locate, to meet spatial scientists and see the latest technology.

Our winners in 2018, Lizzie and Micah from Nowra Christian School, undertook a fantastic project called ‘Using spatial technology to optimise nest box placement’ and received their certificates in front of hundreds of spatial professionals (and proud parents and teacher!) at the Asia-Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards Dinner.

So if you know a high school teacher in the field, have a child who might be interested or just want to find our more information, please visit the competition website:

Submissions for this year's program close on Friday 13 December 2019. Don’t hesitate to reach out to if you have any questions.
