Science & Industry

Yesterday's science has often become today's technology, and tomorrow's
industry. And in turn, yesterday’s technology and industrial capabilities have
often shaped the pace and direction of the scientific advances that have remade
civilization and human understanding of our world. For centuries, where
scientific and engineering institutions have been fostered has often conferred
great economic and industrial advantages. Yet also, flows of scientific and
technological engineering knowledge between nations, regions and cities have
continually reshaped the landscape of competitive advantage and international
cooperation. Understanding the geographical foundations of these dynamics is
key to understanding how civilization has evolved. MapStory offers this space for
all kinds of StoryLayers and MapStories, both historical and present-day, which
capture the sources of scientific advance, technological change and industrial
innovation that continually remake humanity.
