Invited Speaker: Sam Wilson
Join us for an informal social event after the conference closes. Swap stories, make some new friends, and chat about what drives your passion and interest in the world of geospatial.
We’re excited to announce that two fantastic keynote talks are confirmed for the Perth Hub. These are not to be missed!
Dr Russell Keith-Magee
The world is a big place, and Perth is famously a long way from everywhere. Can someone who calls Perth home have an impact on the world stage? In this talk, Russell Keith-Magee will share how you can use Open Source to establish a reputation on the world stage without leaving our obscure backwater - and the pitfalls to watch for along the way.
Dr Russell Keith-Magee is the founder of the BeeWare project, developing GUI tools and libraries to support the development of Python software on desktop and mobile platforms. He has also been a member of the Django core team since 2006, and for 5 years, was President of the Django Software Foundation. In his day job, he wrangles data pipelines for Upwave.
Femina Metcalfe and Helen Ensikat will be making the case for open source development in government, and talking about the ways they're currently using and creating open source solutions to make biodiversity data more accessible.
Femina Metcalfe is Chief Information Officer and Helen Ensikat is Manager of the Biodiversity Information Office at the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation, and Attractions at the Government of Western Australia.
Full Length Presentations
Inventing with QGIS
Tom Lynch - Gaia Resources / Trailmarker
This talk's about one way—my way—to get sorted for fast, creative QGIS plugin development, with tight feedback loops as you develop, quick access to QGIS APIs and great testability. It discusses my work with Gaia Resources building tools for North Australia and Rangelands Fire Information (NAFI).
Daily mobility and foodscape exposure using aggregated mobile phone location data
Ellie Cervigni - UWA
Using one year of aggregated mobile phone location data we calculated the kernel density activity space (daily mobility) of IEO Deciles in Perth. The KDE was used to calculate exposure to the food environment as defined by an open dataset of food outlets created from Yelp, OSM, and Fuelwatch data.
QField for Geo's part 2: Creating an effective tool to manage spatial data
Edward Keys - Prodigy Gold
Following from last year's presentation, I will take you through the steps to make your own QField application. From creating a geopackage in the database manager, to attaching dynamic symbologies, QField is the answer to effectively managing spatial data collection in the field.
Rubbish Maps and the QGIS Atlas
Gabriel Diosan - City of Canning
A look into rebuilding a local government waste data set to overcome existing shortcomings, drive mapping queries and the use of the QGIS atlas to produce a large number of maps.
Fire severity mapping with Landsat and Google Earth Engine
Dan Dixon - UWA
This talk will explore the use of Google Earth Engine for mapping the severity (level of crown scorch) of wildfires and prescribed burns in southwest Australia. Specifically, I will cover the benefits of using Earth Engine for mapping the entire catalog of fires over the past 16 years.
Open Source Drone Mapping
Martin Rocks and Tim Cable - Winyama
We'll discuss the use of OpenDroneMap (ODM), an open source drone imagery processing solution, from customising our own installation of it, to how we can use it to create orthomosaics, 3D models, depth elevation models (DEMs) and more for download and eventual import into GIS software like QGIS.
UAVs and open source tools for marine benthic habitat mapping
Ross Gillis - Hydrobiology
Hydrobiology captured UAV imagery of near-shore marine environments. Orthomosaics were created using WebODM and marine benthic habitat was modelled using the Semi-Automatic Classification Plugin for QGIS. We present the considerations and pitfalls when applying this analysis.
Exploring WA's Geochemistry Data Online
Vincent Dinh - GIS Pro
The story of an online drilling and surface sampling data exploration tool, 100% built with open source for the Geological Survey of Western Australia (GSWA).
QGIS Feature Frenzy
John Bryant - Mammoth Geospatial
The list of features in QGIS is long, and getting longer with every release. It can be hard to keep up! In this talk, I'll give a series of short demonstrations of some of my favourite features of QGIS, including a few highlights of the new 3.22 release.
Geospatial data for a campground booking system
Walter Genuit - Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions
DBCA have developed a campground booking system allowing the public to book their camping trips. DBCA is looking to further utilise spatial data available to streamline the system and notifying booking holders of possible campground closures due to bushfires or other emergencies.
A dashboard approach to understanding urban tree canopy cover across Australian cities
Giles Knight - UWA
This presentation unpacks some recent research conducted to investigate the present state of urban tree canopy cover within Australian cities, and how open source tools can be used to create compelling platforms for communicating results online.
An agent-based model of migratory beekeeping in Western Australia
Vidushi Patel - UWA
We developed an agent-based model using open source tools to understand how a change in forage availability relative to future climate affects spatial patterns of beehive migration in WA. The model informs sustainable management decisions within the beekeeping systems.
Vector tiles out of PostGIS – a simple and FOSS solution for Web Maps
Stafford Smith - Winyama
Need vector tiles in your web mapping application for efficient loading of map data that still allows nice user interaction? Vector tile servers can be expensive. Ill show you how to make one with FOSS, (and explain what vector tiles are too)!
