13th November: Workshop Day

A day of hands-on workshops and activities. Come join the fun, mingle with the community, and find out what’s happening in open geospatial in WA and beyond.

Workshops are ticketed separately from the conference and priced at $25 to cover the cost of catering. The OpenStreetMap workshop is a FREE event.

Morning workshop: Introduction to QGIS

This workshop will get you started with QGIS, the full-featured open source GIS desktop software. We’ll run through a series of hands-on exercises around working with vector & raster data, styling and labeling, and making maps. If you’re new to QGIS, this will be an excellent foundation for the afternoon QField workshop.

Afternoon workshop: Data collection with QField

This workshop will introduce you to QField, the mobile GIS app that let’s you collect geospatial data in-the-field and seamlessly integrate it with your QGIS environment. You’ll get an introduction to the QField interface and run through exercises demonstrating how to set up data collection projects on QGIS, best practice for designing powerful data collection forms, and various tips and tricks along the way.

Full day workshop: Contributing to OpenStreetMap

A free, full day workshop aimed at learning some of the main OpenStreetMap tools and techniques, such as the iD and JOSM editors; StreetComplete, OsmAnd, and Vespucci mobile apps; the Overpass API; as well as some good old outdoors ground-truthing. We’ll also talk about how to stay in touch with the OSM community.

COVID Plan

We will be following all government guidelines and will keep registered participants up to date with any changes to the plan. If there is a lockdown in Perth the event will be postponed and information about ticket refunds and holds will be provided.
