2017 Spatial Conference in Cairns
29 June 2017 to 30 June 2017
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.
FunGIS Mapchat : Precision Agriculture use of IoT
15 March 2017 5:30pm

Monthly Mapping Meetup
10 August 2016 5:30pm to 7:00pm
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. As the title suggests we will be looking to organise a meetup every month on the second Wednesday of the month. Meetups will rotate locations with every second meetup in Cairns. Other proposed locations are Tablelands and Innisfail.

KISS - Fungis 2015 AGM - Keeping it Spatially Simple
4 June 2015 8:30am to 5 June 2015 5:00pm
The theme is centered around practical GIS and learning how to do what we need to do in our everyday work, better, more productively and cheaper. Therefore this year's conference will not have presentations, but will have key technology, technical (not marketing) demonstrations and local case studies.
Practical Open GIS Workshop
28 November 2014 9:00am to 30 November 2014 1:00pm
Do you want to visualise your property? Do you want to know how to get free spatial data over your property? Have you heard of Geographical Information Systems (GIS)? Do you think using GIS will cost you lots of $$$? How about only $250 upwards to learn how to in a weekend, with software and data that costs you nothing? You will gain enough practical knowledge to create maps yourself and leave with information on how you can get more done by applying spatial techniques.
8 November 2014 9:00am to 3:00pm
Do you own a GPS but can't download data? Do you want to learn how to use your smartphone to do mapping? Are you unsure what projections and datums mean? Are you interested in looking at cool things? At the Malanda Small Farms Field Day, GPS / GIS / Mapping experts will be available to help you with your nagging technical needs.
8 October 2014 7:00am to 8:30am
Fun-Gals is a Fungis initiative designed to engage women in surveying and spatial sciences across the far-north. The launch of the program will offer women in the industry the opportunity to come together in a relaxed and informal forum to present and discuss ideas over breakfast, followed by time for networking before work. Fun-Gals is inspired by the SSSI Women in Spatial initiative.
6 June 2014 8:15am to 5:00pm
There is more to Networks than data, points, lines and clouds. Come out and reconnect with the people who make Spatial great! Keynote address on wireless mesh networking, Vendor updates, FunGIS AGM and Networking drinks
THIRD ANNUAL LIDAR TECHNOLOGIES WORKSHOP
22 August 2013 to 23 August 2013
The LiDAR Technologies Workshop series in Cairns is emerging as Australia's premier annual LiDAR event, with two previous annual events each drawing in excess of 100 delegates. This is the Surveying and Spatial Science Institute’s first national event focused exclusively on LiDAR. This event was initiated by and is co-hosted by the Far North GIS Users Group (www.fungis.org).
