Fully integrated Timeline JS Map

Fully integrated Timeline JS Map

Timeline tools have become very popular within the digital humanities. From the dhresources website, here are a few that are well known to DHers: ChronoZoom timelines Dipity (timeline infographics) Histropedia ("Discover a new way to visualise Wikipedia. Choose from over 1.5 million events to create and share timelines in minutes") Simile Widgets (embeddable code for visualizing time-based data, including Timeline, Timeplot, Runway, and Exhibition) Tiki-Toki (web-based platform for creating timelines with multimedia; capable of "3D" timelines) Timeline Builder (online tool for building interactive Flash-based timelines from the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media) Timemap ("Javascript library to help use online maps, including Google, OpenLayers, and Bing, with a SIMILE timeline. The library allows you to load one or more datasets in JSON, KML, or GeoRSS onto both a map and a timeline simultaneously") Timeline JS (the Knight Lab's "open-source tool that enables anyone to build visually rich, interactive timelines. Beginners can create a timeline using nothing more than

a Google spreadsheet.... Experts can use their JSON skills to create custom installations, while keeping TimelineJS's core functionality")   Timeline JS is an open source timeline tool that was built by designers, developers, scholars and professors at Northwestern University. The initiative is known as Knightlab, a space dedicated to the creation and development of open source software. It's slogan is "Beautifully crafted timelines that are easy, and intuitive to use". TimelineJS basically allows you to upload event data and embed it on your webpage through the use of their software, albeit with a few options for display which are provided by them. The content is also embedded fully responsively. This means that you will have a decent display of the timeline you create on any device or browser window. The content for Timeline JS is fed through to it by Google Sheets, basically Excel online. The types of data it accepts are text, images, audio, maps and audio-visual material among…

Welcome. This site has been setup to share some of my activities as a digital humanist, ethnomusicologist, web developer, educator and musician. I am currently fellow in digital studies at the Kluge Center (Library of Congress, Washington DC) and also a Fulbright scholar (2019). I recently completed my PhD at University College Cork, Ireland. This project (2014-2018) focused on exploring a library's special collection, the "Seán Ó Riada Collection" at University College Cork in Ireland. In my research, I am interested in the ways by which we can explore these types of

collections with the use of ethnography and digital visualisation. My current project based at the Kluge Center (January 2019 - August 2019) explores ways to reveal hidden field recordings from collections of Irish traditional music, with the goal of connecting and understanding them in new and alternative ways. If you have any thoughts, comments or ideas, I would be interested in hearing from you.     Many of the ideas that I express here will not be complete, but i'm constantly revising.
