Two Thousand Years of Urban Growth

Click here to view the live application.

Inspiration and data for this app was derived from Tertius Chandler's 1987 book entitled Four Thousand Years of Urban Growth: An Historical Census. Chandler's work was merged and updated with data from Esri and Wikipedia.

Special thanks to Witold Frączek and Carol Sousa for geolocating, verifying and updating the city database.

This application makes use of the following libraries:
  • ArcGIS API for JavaScript (beta) by Esri
    • Esri’s JavaScript library for mapping and analysis.
  • D3.js by Mike Bostock
    • D3 is a JavaScript library for visualizing data with HTML, SVG, and CSS.
  • jQuery by jQuery Foundataion Inc
    • A JavaScript framework for DOM manipulation and a foundation for many other frameworks.
