Learn a bit history via Flash map timeline

Posted by Charles | September 11, 2007 .

Can Google map goes back to history. Don’t think so. If you want to learn some history visually and watch the changes over time on a map, you might have to use something like this Flash map timeline. When it starts play, when the year number increase, the a vertical slider is moving to show the events. On the US map, colored shapes will visualize the data.

It is a very simple and not that exciting Flash piece. But going from here, some thing important and lack is discovered: How we visualize time based data. We are in a 4 dimensional world, aren’t we (at least that the dimensions we can comprehends easily.)
