Queensland's Citizen Science Hub

Royal Geographical Society of Queensland

The Royal Geographical Society of Queensland promotes the study and science of Geography and encourages a greater understanding and enjoyment of the world around us. The Society is a voluntary, non-profit organisation that brings together and welcomes people from all walks of life who share an interest in places, geography and the environment.

Geography and the Society offer pathways towards an understanding of our complex world. As a nation Australia faces major challenges of environmental, economic and demographic sustainability, cultural diversity and the advancement of technology, while maintaining a role as a significant player in global affairs. Geography integrates the study of earth’s landscapes, people, places and environments. Our discipline bridges the natural and social sciences. Geography has embraced the new age of instant communications and rapid advances in technology which affect the way we live, work and play. Satellites transmit remotely-sensed data to computers, ipads and smart phones, making possible accurate and timely analysis and decision-making in fields of national, local and personal importance. Digital mapping techniques developed by geographers have given the world the basis for every GPS in public use today. Geographic insights and literacy are crucial in addressing environmental, geopolitical, economic and national security issues.
