Suggestion for Timeline Tool in NFS

Postby marlattrj-p40 » Thu Jun 07, 2007 11:10 am

While working on my family's genealogy website I found a great timeline tool, SMILE Timeline, built using AJAX. The API is very simaler to the Google Map API, and is licensed under the BSD license. This could be very easily integrated into the NFS site. Unfortunately I missed the beta for NFS so I don't know what type of timeline is being used if any. I would suggest taking a look at it as it is very interactive and slick. My family uses The Next Generation to share our genealogy and I am working on Mashing SMILE Timeline with TNG this weekend.

Very cool. I was thinking of creating something like this for something totally different...a timeline of "computer use" at the Church. I'll look into it.

Look at the Life Browser here. I think they are open to suggestions.

Tom, did you ever build a timeline of computer use at the church?
