Brisbane Enjoys World’s Largest GIS Day Celebration

Wednesday 20th November marked this year’s International GIS Day 2013, and Brisbane celebrated in style with a massive open day showcasing the best and latest geospatial technologies.

With nearly 30 exhibitors demonstrating the real-world benefits of GIS, the event attracted over 2000 visitors, including interested members of the public, school students and local business owners.

Displays included a virtual 3D Brisbane from Brisbane City Council, disaster management mapping, unmanned aerial drones, 3D laser scanning and Queensland Government’s ground-breaking Queensland Globe, to name just a few. Some of the visiting school children were even lucky enough to have an inspirational talk by Dr Timothy Foresman, world-renowned Spatial Scientist and Event Speaker. These exhibits and talks highlight how GIS is at the forefront of a powerful new technological revolution that will change the way we all view the world.

Igor Stjepanovic, Managing Director of event organisers GIS People, says “We’re extremely pleased with the success of the event. It’s been impressive demonstration of what GIS technology can do for business, government, academia and the general public.”

The event was sponsored by GIS People, Esri Australia, Dialog Google Enterprise and AAM, with further assistance from a large number of supporters and volunteers. Visit GIS People’s Facebook page and www.gisday.com.au for more information and photos of the event.
