Creating interactive timelines

"Perspectives on the Haram" is an exhibit created by a group of University of Virginia undergraduate students for a course in the School of Architecture, taught by Professor Lisa Reilly. The exhibit uses images and texts from travel accounts to details the changes of the Haram Mosque over a thousand years (Virginia Harness, Jody Lahendro, Kelly Schantz, and David Sherdil | Map: Google Satellite | Link provided with the permission of the authors)Handy for illustrating both broad eras or shorter time spans, as well as applicable for classroom assignments and conference papers, these web-based tools are great for creating interactive and dynamic timelines:

  • Tiki-Toki: a web app to create interactive multimedia timelines with embedded images, text and even videos (YouTube, Vimeo and AVIs); they also have a desktop version for Max OSX.
  • Neatline: an add-on of open source web-publishing platform Omeka, Neatline allows you to create maps, annotate images, and develop narratives to interpret collections of artifacts, documents, or richly-described concepts.
