Simulations from the Early Days

Michel Batty has gathered some really interesting Early Animations of Urban Models.

One of these videos shows Jack Dangermond (co-founder of Esri) and Allan Schmidt* talking about the 'Harvard Laboratory for Computer Graphics and Spatial Analysis'. (more videos on GIS history here.)

*Allan Schmidt was responsible for what is probably the earliest "movie" of urban expansion. A SYMAP time lapse movie depicting growth of Lansing, MI 1850-1965.
