Part of our research requires creating a timeline of events. To help visualize the timeline, which is being done in a database and isn’t very pretty, we’re using ‘Timeline JS’ a free tool who’s only real downside is it can’t handle too many events on a single timeline. To deal with this limitation we’ve broken up our 1972-1987 research into bite-size pieces to help Timeline JS deal with the number of events we’ve acquired.
Not all events are included because we have to update these timelines outside of our actual research; they don’t automatically get updated when we add an event to our database. We just wanted to give you an idea of how things might look with a timeline.
