The timeline represents a compilation of key events and statements but does not claim to be exhaustive.
Move the timeline using the mouse scroll-wheel, the keyboard's arrow buttons or by dragging it horizontally with your mouse. Click on each event for more details.
The bottom bar displays the years, the selected time period (light-grey field), the present (green line) and the events (blue lines).
SIMILE Timeline, a tool to visualize temporal information on an interactive drag-able timeline, is part of the SIMILE Widgets, an open-source "spin-off" from the Simile project at MIT. SIMILE Widgets are free, open-source web widgets, mostly for data visualizations. They are maintained and improved over time by a community of open-source developers.
