About us

Whether its making a simple site map or running deep learning analyses on satellite data, students and researchers are often called upon to conduct geospatial analysis. πŸ—ΊοΈ

Fortunately, there a wealth of freely available tools can help to complete these tasks: think R, Python and QGIS.πŸ”¨

Unfortunately, a steep learning curve is often required to apply these tools, particularly when we don’t all have a strong background in coding, GIS or remote sensing.

The Brisbane Geospatial Analysis Community of Practice (take the survey to choose a new name!) tries to make this process a bit less painful, by sharing our experiences, skills and tricks in a friendly and inclusive environment. πŸ‘©β€πŸ’» We run monthly skill sharing tutorial sessions where a member of the community teaches us something they have learned along the way.

This usually occurs on the last Thursday of each month. See upcoming events for the next session and check out our blog for previous sessions.
