How Timeglider Works

Timeglider is a data-driven interactive timeline application. You can “grab” the timeline and drag it left and right, and zoom in and out — much as you would with a mapping app — to view centuries at a time or just hours. You can create create event spans so that you can see durations and how they overlap. Being web-based, Timeglider lets you collaborate and share easily.

You can create timelines about the last year of your family, the last century of world events, or about pre-historical (bce/bc) times. You can zoom in to see ten minutes, or zoom out to see billions of years.

  1. Melanie Kroening - Mesa Community College says:

    Timeglider is a digital web application that allows you to create up to 3 timelines for free. It’s easy to use and has great features that allow for images, text, links and audio/video to be added to the timeline. In addition you can indicate the importance of events such that more important events are shown larger and with more emphasis.
