Data And Content Visualization: Simile Widgets
Simile Widgets is a set of open source web widgets for visualizing data & content.
They are actually a spin-off from the Simile Project & improved over time by a community of open-source developers.
Currently, it includes 4 widgets:
Timeline is for creating an interactive display of events within a timeframe.
It can be dragged or controlled with the mouse wheel & events can be clicked to see the details.
Timeplot is a DHTML widget for plotting time series easily.
On mouse-overs, it can display the values interactively (it works with the same data format that Timeline supports).
Runway is a Flash-based implementation of the popular iTunes-like coverflow.
It is for creating web pages with advanced text search and filtering functionalities, with interactive maps, timelines, & other visualizations.
