Peter -

Thanks -

One more historical note: I was the only MOSS software developer from 1978
into 1970. In 1979, some additional resources were added to both the FWS
and Autometric teams (John Lee for documentation, Randy Frosh for
cartographic output, Jim Kramer for data input). And then a bit later John
Davidson and Anne Hunter joined the Autometric team for MOSS support and
coding. Also in mid-1979 WAMS software development moved into the Ft.
Collins WELUT facility. At this point Autometric staff began working
closely with WELUT staff on various GIS related activities (such as
integration of the APPS-IV and WAMS into GIS workflows). In 1980, Danhy
Alberts coded the first WAMS (AMS) to MOSS conversion software. The above
was written from memory :-)

Exact details with proper dates can be found here:
