On Thu we will be challenged by the Queensland Police in Disaster Response and Search and Rescue. We'll then learn more about spatial information in the new Queensland Globe, mapping marine debris and 3D modelling -that's just in the morning. In the afternoon we'll look at how UAV's can be used in innovative agriculture and get a quickie on practical drone use. Fri will be focused on getting you trained up, flying and analysing the data that comes out of a semi-professional drone.

A social evening where we get together to network, have a brief talk by a Spatial Angel and then share a drink, some nibbles and continue to network. Informal dinner arrangements will follow the meetup if you would like to keep networking.

Other proposed locations are Tablelands and Innisfail.
