Timemap.js is a Javascript library that helps you to produce online maps (such as Google, OpenLayers, and Bing) along with a SIMILE timeline. You can load one or more datasets (in JSON, KML, or GeoRSS) onto both a map and a timeline simultaneously. By default, only items in the visible range of the timeline are displayed on the map.


Visualizes a series of events across both time and space. Allows researcher to create of an interactive timeline and map that are linked together. Users of the timeline can press "play" to watch the timeline scroll forward and the map zoom from place to place as they highlight each event (and the researcher's attached images and text) in turn. Users can also pause the progress of history, move forward or back at their own pace, and zoom in or out of either the map or timeline to examine areas of interest.
