Histropedia - the Timeline of Everything
From Ewan McAndrew on May 10th, 2017
Histropedia is a website developed by Navino Evans and Sean McBirnie that visualises different events in the form of a timeline, usually using a category from Wikipedia or a live query on Wikidata.
The website is open for anyone to use, edit, expand or even reuse its source code. The website currently has 340,000 timelines listing 1.5 million articles from Wikipedia. You can browse through timelines about ancient and modern empires, battles of World War I, painters of sixteenth century Italy, or merge two different timelines to see who ruled Italy at the time each of those painters lived. You can manually create new timelines or even extract data to be visualized in a tailor-made timeline within seconds using a Wikidata live query.
This video walkthrough shows you how you can create visually dynamic timelines in seconds.
