Visualizing 14 Billion Years of History

Designer and developer Matan Sauber has created Histography, an interactive data visualization that plots timelines for every historical event listed on Wikipedia. Users can break down the timeline by category of event, such as literature, inventions, and assassinations, and by time period, such as the formation of the earth or the iron age. Histography automatically updates daily with new events recorded on Wikipedia.
