Summary There are many stories about the origins of geographic information systems technology. A few of them are true. But no matter which story you hear, if you probe a little bit, you will find a connection to the Harvard Laboratory for Computer Graphics and Spatial Analysis, where, beginning in 1965, planners, geographers, cartographers, mathematicians, computer scientists, artists, and many others converged to rethink thematic mapping, spatial analysis, and what is now called GIS.
