ChronoZoom is an open source community project dedicated to visualizing the history of everything. ChronoZoom bridges the gap between the humanities and sciences using a notion of “Big History” to easily understand all this information. It is an interactive timeline for all of history and it allows to explore all of the past – from the Big Bang, to the dinosaurs, to ancient and modern history.
ChronoZoom was named one of five finalists at the 2013 South by Southwest (SXSW) for the Interactive Award for educational resources. The tool is used by education community and by museums in United States.
This project has been developed by our team in collaboration with Microsoft Research, University California at Berkeley.
