Home - TimeFlow - GitHub Evolution Timeline - AndaBien The background indicates inches and feet. 1/20th in. = roughly 100 thousand years. (108,000) 1 inch = about 2 million years. (2,160,000) 1 foot = about 26 million years. (25,920,000) The whole page is about 135 feet wide, almost half a football field, representing 3.5 billion years. (3,500,000,000) For more information, move your cursor over the bars. To really gain some perspective, pay attention to the bottom scroll bar. To make this more accessible to the average person I have simplified the presentation of the evolutionary record. Students of paleontology will notice omissions. Zoom in by a factor of 1,000 on the Hominid Timeline, from walking upright to the present day.

Mind Mapping A mind map is a diagram used to visually organize information. A mind map is hierarchical and shows relationships among pieces of the whole.[1] It is often created around a single concept, drawn as an image in the center of a blank page, to which associated representations of ideas such as images, words and parts of words are added. Major ideas are connected directly to the central concept, and other ideas branch out from those. Mind maps can be drawn by hand, either as "rough notes" during a lecture, meeting or planning session, for example, or as higher quality pictures when more time is available. Mind maps are considered to be a type of spider diagram.[2] A similar concept in the 1970s was "idea sun bursting".[3] Origins[edit] The semantic network was developed in the late 1950s as a theory to understand human learning and developed further by Allan M. Popularisation of the term "mind map"[edit] Mind map guidelines[edit] Buzan suggests the following guidelines for creating mind maps:

Insoonia - Em pé sem cair deitado sem dormir! LOTR Timeline Graph The ever-hilarious xkcd featured a comic which was very much a visualization. It was a chart showing the interactions between characters from a handful of movies. The comic was the kick I needed to do a quick experiment with timeline-based graph visualizations. Here's the result. It's a bit of a mess, but what I've done is synchronize three components: a slider, the original comic from xkcd, and the graph visualization. As time passes (or unpasses), the graph automatically shifts to reflect the data for the current time step. There's a lot more work that could be done to make the changes more obvious and less disorienting. ".. and you add places as they appear in groups .. geography reversed" I had a quick back and forth with Dr. The comic's visualization was portraying character interactions but since they didn't have phones in middle earth, it wasn't too hard to associate these interactions with locations. <div class="disqus-noscript"><a href="

UNIX History Below, you can see the preview of the Unix History (move on the white zone to get a bigger image): This is a simplified diagram of unix history. There are numerous derivative systems not listed in this chart, maybe 10 times more! In the recent past, many electronic companies had their own unix releases. This diagram is only the tip of an iceberg, with a penguin on it ;-). If you want to print this timeline, you can freely download one of the following PDF files: Warning: it seems that Adobe Reader has some problems reading the large plotter version of the Unix History chart, but happily you can use another PDF viewer for this task. Here is the ChangeLog of this history. Note 1 : an arrow indicates an inheritance like a compatibility, it is not only a matter of source code. Note 2 : this diagram shows complete systems and [micro]kernels like Mach, Linux, the Hurd... Note 3 : I have now a page where I explain how I build this chart.

Icons Timeline - Icons of England You have landed on this page because you were searching for the ICONS project - or one of the iconic objects the project featured such as the Spitfire or the Red Telephone Box. The ICONS project invited the public to nominate and vote for the icons we cherish about England in the 21st century - like The Mini and Monty Python - even things like the Full English Breakfast, Queueing and James Bond. The project finished in 2011 and is no longer published online. But before you click away here are the final list of 100 as voted by the public: What do you think? We will be publishing more content around the 100 ICONS of England in due course, so do check back. In the meantime Culture24 brings you listings, news, learning, exhibitions and fun from thousands of galleries and museums across the country.
