This group aims to build the student and young professional membership base of the society and to improve the engagement of younger members in society events. Future goals include a broader range of career networking or development activities and potentially extending the reach of the group to engage with and inspire high school aged students to consider geography as a future career pathway.
A Facebook space in which tertiary geography students and early to mid-career professionals can socialise, network and explore career pathway opportunities.

Map Group’s activities are a vibrant part of the Society. This special interest group (SIG) has a focus on maps and mapping related activities. The group meets monthly and hosts lectures, events including visits to institutions and map collections. Activities have included special mapping projects such as mapping parts of the Milton and Nundah suburbs as part of the Open Street Map project. External visits have included private tours of map collections in the National Library Canberra, War Memorial in Canberra and Queensland State Archives. The Map Group hosts its own internal lectures every two months with external guest speakers or members from within the Map Group. Lecture topics have included Interpreting Aviation Charts, Lidar in Digital Mapping, Map Making for Orienteering and the Role of Drones in Modern Geography.
Map Group meets each month February – December. We encourage anyone who has an interest in maps and mapping, whether historical or cutting-edge technology to join the Map Group. For more information contact mailto: email@example.com or Bob Abnett on (07) 3820-2621.
