Where was the first place you saw GIS or GPS? Was it in high school or college, or maybe in a news cast? Think harder. Chances are that you might have caught your first glimpse of these technologies in movies and on television, perhaps even before they were invented. Since the early 20th century movies and television have been portraying GIS and geospatial systems. From map tracking devices in James Bond, to police station maps plotting criminal activity to sci-fi futurescapes where every piece of information is spatially modeled (and available by talking to a voice-enabled computer).

This presentation will provide a historical look of how GIS technologies have been presented in the past in both film and television and discuss parallel real time GIS development.
