An Interactive Visual Framework for History!

TimeMaps specialize in map-based history timelines. The “Time-Map” concept was originally conceived to offer a visual framework for history topics. A map combined with a timeline lets users see where an event is happening, both in time and space.

Easy to access, just point and click. It gives them a panoramic view of change over time, and so allows them to understand causes and effects of historical episodes much more easily. With this aim, the hugely ambitious TimeMap of World History was created which offers the full spectrum of human history, calling in at each civilization, nation and empire.

Through working closely with history teachers, the maps developed far beyond their original concepts and Topic TimeMaps branched off on their own. With the inclusion of layers of information, timelines, images, animations and worksheets, they moved beyond visual overviews into rich depth-study guides that easily show complex interactions and internal dynamics very effectively.
