Bushfire Map-a-thon

SSSI joins the rest of the global community in mourning the loss of lives, livelihoods and communities during the recent catastrophic bush fires. We are hosting a National Bushfire Recovery Map-a-thon to assist efforts and registrations are now open.

Please note - no special skills are required to take part in the Map-a-thon - just a willingness to help the disaster recovery efforts and a computer. We’ll provide you with all of the how-to’s, as well as support along the way. Visit our website for more information.

See you in person or online this Sunday or post!


Locate20 Conference is taking place on 28 - 30 April in Brisbane.  The theme is Convergence, Collaboration and Community - Towards a Stronger Economy. We will share from across industry sectors how geospatial and location technologies and practices are being used, highlighting the fundamental role they play in the building of our digital economy. 

Registration is now open and we have recently released the program for the event.  Please take the time to have a look and remember that Earlybird Registration closes on February 10th!
