The New Web Timeline Tool in Town The coders over at ProPublica, a leading source for independent investigative journalism, have released their new TimelineSetter tool under an open license. The tool takes a list of comma separate values (you can follow their example) containing the content for the timeline and spits out a web page to display it, complete with the various additional files needed to display it on any old web server. When these files are uploaded to your server the result are timelines that look like this. Sounds great, doesn’t it? Well for some, it may take a little time to get up and running. timeline-setter -c /path/to/data.csv -o /path/to/output/directory -a Thus, if I have a timeline file on my Mac desktop called “timeline.txt” and a newly created folder called “timeline” the correct command would be: timeline-setter -c ~/Desktop/timeline.txt -o ~/Desktop/timeline -a I then take that folder “timeline” and upload it to my server. This new tool is not the only game in town. Return to Top
Coggle Interactive 3D model of Solar System Planets and Night Sky QIAT. Quality Indicators for Assistive Technology Cool Infographics - Blog Intel has released What About Me?, an automatic infographic generator that connects to your own Twitter, Facebook and YouTube accounts to create a profile infographic about you. Social media users know that discovery is half the fun. With What about Me? you can capture a snapshot of your social media life and create your own colorful image, full of clues and facts about one of the most fascinating subjects in the world — YOU! In general, I’m not a fan of automatically generated infographics. From a design perspective, the “About Me” section is the big central visual element. In the “How I put it out there” section, the bars are all portions of the total 100%, so a pie chart or a stacked bar would have been a better chart style to use in the design. I really like the simplicity of the “My Mood” section, and I think they actually made it too small in this design. I think they setup the sharing function poorly. Found on Mashable
