GeoRabble is an all-inclusive, informal industry forum of geo-obsessed people who want to celebrate the real work done by people using location information; unfiltered by government and private company agendas and industry politics.

This presentation by GeoRabble aims to lubricate your geo-thinking and help you understand the benefits and challenges of working with geospatial data.  It’ll also dive into the Open Source tools and libraries that are available to help you deliver geo-information via the desktop and the Web.

To satisfy those itching for more – there’ll also be a detailed run though of a sample geospatial web app using an HTML5/PHP frontend with PostgreSQL at the backend, utilising Creative Commons licensed ABS Census data.
