Gareth LLoyd has put this visualisation together using geo location and historic referneces on Wikipedia. The result: a fascinating voew of how and where we have developed.

This visualisation gives us yet another example of how we can reuse data to create insight with impact. You might like to think of it as a timeline brought to life. It is worth 100 seconds of your time.
