Design of a tool for the visualization of historical data

Montaña, Ricardo Cedeño;


In the sciences the combination of different types of analysis, textual and visual, contributes to the legibility of the results of the research. Techniques such as data visualization and information graphics have a long history in the natural and social sciences. Recently, researchers in the humanities have got interested in producing visualizations to synthesize facts and trends. The purpose is to create novel observations and analysis of historical and cultural data. This paper presents the use of programming and markup languages to design a custom and open tool for the creation of one particular type of historical data visualization: chronologies.
