Visualizing The Evolution Of London

Source: CASA
We came across this fascinating animation of the evolution of London over its 2000-year-old history from the Guardian. It was created by the researchers at the University College London's Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA). They used georeferenced road network data to show how it changed from a small Roman city to the metropolis it is today.

Learners will be mesmerized watching the timeline unfold as it travels through time. The short subtitles provide a historical overview of the different periods in London's long history, and the yellow, hot spots indicate where buildings and structures were built during each era. The London Evolution Animation is geography in motion that's bound to captivate and hold the attention of students as the visualization unfurls to soft, poetic music.
