hi all,

i'm looking for some really good examples of 'interactive timelines'
where a high volume of disparate content types are mapped to a
timeline and the user can more through time and interact with the
content items. Generally speaking these tend to be Flash apps.

has anyone seen anything like this lately? And if so, can you point me
in their direction?

the more complex the content and beautiful/easy the interaction the better :)

many thanks,
Leisa

Check out Erin Malone's list of interactive timelines
http://www.emdezine.com/designwritings/archives/cat_timelines.shtml

The Russian Avant Guard Book project (MoMA) is just barely a timeline, but it's still one of my
favorites. Also, here's an updated link to the Motown timeline, highly recommended.
http://classic.motown.com/timeline/
http://www.moma.org/exhibitions/2002/russian/

Finally, you might check the Communication Arts Interactive Annual for some examples. The
archives are online.

The most recent versions of Encarta have some very nice interactive timelines
with many kinds of media. Not sure if the online versions measure up; haven't
checked.

For those who are interested, I have collected the interactive
timeline links in my delicious account. You can see them here:
http://del.icio.us/leisa/interactive-timeline

A few of the links that people sent through were more interactive maps
than timelines, but some of these were also great. I have a full list
on my blog at:

http://www.disambiguity.com/2006/04/links-for-2006-04-18/

(I may have left off a couple that were unsuitable for my purposes,
but this is the better part of the list).

You can also do a search in delicious on the tags interactive and
timeline and you'll get a pretty wide range of results.

Enjoy!

Leisa

This is an interesting list Leisa.

I wonder if you have seen the new timeline from Google...
http://finance.google.com/finance?cid=694653

I was pretty impressed with it. I think Jakob has even made favourable
noises about it.

Cheers

Carl

Leisa,

I would look at some of the projects created by Second Story and
Terra Incognita. Both firms do work for the Smithsonian, and National
Geographic which often create 'Timelines'. There is an interesting
map/timeline that compares the Chesapeake Bay.

The only thing that would make it better, IMO, would be the ability to
layer multiple information sources on a single graph. As Tufte says,
data without comparison isn't really saying anything.
