Greetings:
A colleague and I are working on paper/presentation that deals with the historical evolution of GIS or GPS technologies in film and TV. Specifically, we are interested in examples of early precursors to map related technologies that are now common. For example, early police shows have crime locations marked as pins on a map, today there are electronic maps with a multitude of different information associated with each point. Another example would be the James Bond film Goldfinger which has a back-lit, moving map in 007ís Aston Martin which is very similar to most in-car GPS devices. I was wondering if the community had other examples from films/TV that they recall early examples of what are now standard modern mapping or GPS devices. Thank you in advance for any assistance.
