A lecture that I gave on 17th March 2010 at the University of Nottingham on the History of Web Mapping.

Starts with some early history and then tracks the interplay of technology, business and usage in the development of web mapping over the last 2 decades.

Based on a series of interviews with key players in the UK and US, this is a work in progress. There is still quite a lot more needed to complete this.

Some useful resources are linked to in the penultimate slide. The mind map that I used to build this talk is at http://bit.ly/HistoryWebMap

  • bkusse Bart Kusse, Domain Thoughtleader Geo-ICT at Capgemini Nederland b.v. Interesting view on the developments of web maps. One major GIS-company seems to be missing: Intergraph (I have no shares). Otherwise the focus might be solely on ESRI, which is a major player, but certainly not the only one. I also had a look at your mindmap, where the GIS-timeline easily will fit in, since this has both connections to technology and business.
    Excellent work, I will forward the link to students.

  • stevenfeldman Steven Feldman, Investor and Mentor at knowwhere @Carl Thanks for the comments. I have updated the mind map at https://www.mindmeister.com/maps/show/84442111 to reflect those thoughts. I will update slides when I have gathered enough changes etc for a full v2

    @lance Missing OGC standards was a perspective issue on my part which several picked up, I also have not covered mobile at all. The mind map has been updated with the key dates for OGC at https://www.mindmeister.com/maps/show/84442111

  • carlnreed Carl Reed, CTO at OGC Steven -

    Nice. However, a couple of items. The internet was actually 'born' in 1969 and not 1991. October 1969 is when the first data packets were exchanged between multiple computers. Specifically, The first ARPANET link was established between the University of California, Los Angeles and the Stanford Research Institute on 22:30 hours on October 29, 1969. Of course, quite a few years passed before a truly 'operational' internet infrastructure evolved. Anyway, 1991 appears to be the year the web was 'born'. Again specifically, on August 6, 1991, Berners-Lee posted a short summary of the World Wide Web project on the alt.hypertext newsgroup. This date also marked the debut of the Web as a publicly available service on the Internet. Finally, you might want to add a slide on the emergence of the browser. Without browsers, the web is pretty hard to use :-) From Wikipedia, 'The introduction of the NCSA Mosaic Web browser in 1993 – one of the first graphical Web browsers – led to an explosion in Web use.'

    Hope this helps!

  • lancemckee lancemckee No mention of the OGC's WMS standard? Open standards for sensor webs? Open GeoSMS and GML and the GML version of GeoRSS? CityGML? A history deserves a look at what's inevitably emerging - open standards that allow the full development of rich networks and the entirely new things that emerge from them! 3 years ago
