As many of you might already know, Roger Tomlinson, a.k.a. the Father of GIS, died on February 9, 2014. Here is good article about him. Also available is the great three part video called ‘Data for Decision’ from 1967(!!) in which the first GIS is presented (CGIS) by Roger Tomlinson. It is kind of crazy that such a high budget movie was made about the first GIS, if you have not seen it before you are in for a great treat! And finally here is a link to a short video from 2010 in which Roger Tomlinson talks about the movie from 1967.
