ChronoZoom: A Timeline for Big History

5/13/2013; 3 minutes

Based on an idea from a University of California, Berkeley, student, Roland Saekow, ChronoZoom - a zoomable timeline of timelines augmented with multimedia features -- is coming to life. UC Berkeley geology professor Walter Alvarez and his students have teamed up with Microsoft Research Connections engineers to make this web-based software possible. ChronoZoom is being designed to help visualize history and to assist researchers in viewing large amounts of data to find new historical connections. (#23887)
