    Creating Visual Timelines Using TimeLine Curator

    Want to make a visual timeline, but don't have the time to draw one manually? Or maybe you have some documents, but you're not sure if the events they depict form a compelling timeline?

    TimeLineCurator is an online tool that lets you quickly and automatically find temporal references in freeform text to generate a visual timeline. You can then interactively curate the events in this timeline, or create a mashup of multiple documents against each other to compare their temporal structure.

    In this session, Johanna Fulda of the UBC Computer Science InfoVis Group group will give a demo of the tool and show a few projects that were built with it.

    Registration: Registration is not required, but will help us plan for space. You can RSVP online, or just drop-in to join us. As this is a brown bag session, please feel free to bring your lunch. Coffee and tea will be available.
