CORRECTION: The initial version of this article incorrectly stated that the open day was on Monday 10th March. The 10th March is a Tuesday, and Tuesday is the open day. Spatial Source apologises for any confusion that this may have caused.

The Locate 15 conference is hosting a free open day for the public on Tuesday 10th March. The open day will allow the 35+ exhibitors and sponsors to show off the latest spatial technologies and solutions from across Australia and New Zealand through their stalls and various vendor presentations and industry updates held throughout the day.

Presentations will include the QLD Globe, ICMS update, OGC, STEM program and, of course, attendees will also have access to the exhibitors.

At the open day, you will be provided the opportunity to:

  1. Connect with people with a shared interest in spatial innovation
  2. Connect face to face with key decision makers
  3. Discover how to navigate through tomorrow with spatial
  4. Harness the explosion of the spatial industry technology and solutions
  5. Strengthen your brand through LOCATE 15

Education at Locate15

The STEM program is designed to attract students, teachers, and those passionate about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (S.T.E.M.) to the open day.

STEM Topics will include:

  • An introduction to Queensland Globe
  • Neighbourhood safety
  • How hazard ready should you be?
  • Landscapes in the Australian Curriculum Year 8: QTopo – Queensland’s online topographic     mapping tool.
  • Your Z Day plan? Preparing for a zombie apocalypse.
  • Should we build the next amusement park on your street?

Locate15 has been developed to inspire not only those working within the industry but also youth who are interested in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Queensland’s Department of Natural Resources and Mines has recently hired a dedicated spatial educator to develop lesson plans designed to motivate young people to consider careers in Spatial as well as assist teachers in content to support their students.

The Educational Program has been developed and will be delivered by Mick Law, Senior Project Officer, Queensland Spatial Information Council, Department of Natural Resources and Mines, Queensland.

There is no charge to attend. Bookings are recommended for large groups, however walk-ins are welcome.

For more information about the program or if your school/class is interested in securing a larger group visit to Locate15 for the S.T.E.M program, please contact Mick Law on 07 3406 2807 or Michael.Law@qld.gov.au.
