Another season is upon us.
Registration begins September 27 and teams are debating their competition schedules.
Just something to start with, here are a couple of geographical time lapse looks at team growth each year since 1992.
They’re in the form of a 21 year slide show.
Colors change to signify each event structure change, e.g., 1995: added a second event called Nationals, 2009:added the District system.
By the last slide Red is Championship, Blue are Regionals, Yellow are Districts, Green are District Championships, Purple are Teams.
Click through the slides or download and it should run automatically.

If anyone wants to do a version featuring their own local area, all the maps are linked at the top of this page: http://www.team358.org/files/frc_records/index.php
For instance, I have one zoomed in to just show the development of local Long Island teams.
