Collaborative Timeline

From ToolCenter

A project of the Stanford hpsCollaboratory that uses a Flash interface to enable users to build event timelines. A sample timeline is available here.

"The collaborative timeline tool was designed by Casey Alt and Vince Dorie as a means for communities to construct multiple parallel timeline categories representing various structural dimensions significant to the development of a research field (or just about any subject of interest). Events can be added to the timeline by any member of the designated community together with any documentation related to the event, including original documentation to be stored in our database, or links to already existing documentation on the web. Links with commentary and accompanying documentation can be drawn between events considered closely connected. Events can be 'flagged' by members of the community for importance. The entire structure can be filtered to reflect the views of individual contributors or groups of contributors. All levels of the timelines, including events, commentary, and links are supported by a forum-type threaded discussion that is fully searchable."
