ChronoZoom Interactive Timeline of Events preceding WWI
This interactive visualization uses ChronoZoom's API to fetch data of one particular timeline (events preceding WWI) and displays it's events in a new way that is user friendly and easily navigatable. A special feature of this visualization is that causalities, i.e. historical events that lead to other events are visualized within the timeline and chains of causalities can interactively be highlighted.
Apart from the background image, this visualization uses only data provided by the ChronoZoom project's API. All visual layout, coloring and interaction of events and causalities is done programmatically. This means, that this visualization is capable of displaying any arbitrary timeline from the ChronoZoom project (this has not yet been tested though).
works on recent browsers, IE10+
