How Would a Timeline Work in the Graphical User Interface of the MBH Database?

A pictorial timeline of human history would give the "big picture" so that the user could zoom-in to the details. Some examples of such pictorial timelines already created are Andreas Nothiger's World History Chart, John B. Sparks' Time Chart of World History, and Timeline of World History by Useful Charts. Follow the link to see John Sparks' Histomap.

Hyperlinks within the picture of world history could take the user to specific queries, for example, all movies or all events that are linked to a particular period. See Periods Minor for a list of periods that consecutively portray world history from the earliest civilizations to the present.
