About us

Our Purpose

To sustain a vital, diverse and thriving geospatial community for the benefit of the nation.

The Geospatial Council of Australia is the peak body representing the interests of organisations and individuals, including new and emerging professionals working in the vast range of occupations for surveying, space and spatial in the digital world.

Today’s geospatial professionals are leaders and innovators, advancing our industries with technologies using located based services, drones and autonomous vehicles, 3D modelling, robotics, artificial intelligence,  machine learning, virtual reality and the Internet of Things.

Our members are professional individuals – established and emerging – or organisations including businesses, not-for-profits, universities and training organisations.

With a commitment to diversity and inclusion, mentoring emerging talent, raising profile and advancing the economic benefits of our industry, we welcome new members to Australia’s most forward-thinking geospatial community.

Our Values

We do things well - we always act with integrity and strive to deliver outcomes of a high standard while caring for our members and the whole community.

We are inclusive - we collaborate respectfully and diligently to represent all our members in an inclusive environment, embracing all perspectives, to make a positive impact.

We are passionate - we celebrate achievements, exceptional outcomes and create impact for our members and in turn the geospatial industry.

We aim high - we stay focused on outcomes to continuously improve opportunities for the geospatial industry so that we can grow together.

Strategic Priorities

Increase the profile of geospatial-related occupations to attract and retain talent.

Australia needs a relevant and skilled, digitally enabled, space and spatial industry workforce to be assured of a thriving industry in the immediate and emerging future.

Increase investment into, and the recognition of, the geospatial ecosystem to provide global best practice technology and services across the economy.

Achieving our growth potential is of vital importance and GCA will tackle this through influential advocacy, policy development and identification of growth opportunities.

Strengthen the voice of the geospatial ecosystem across whole of government, industry, and communities throughout Australia and internationally.

We will be a single, unified voice advocating on behalf of the geospatial community. Each member, no matter what size, discipline or jurisdiction will have the opportunity to actively participate in the growth and development of our peak body and the geospatial industry.
