Create visual informative TimeLines for education, research or project planning of time-related events with HyperTimeLines.




TimeLine elements can be Events, Periods and MileStones. Every element can carry information and images. Elements are interactive. In other words, they show a popup info-window on mouse-over with text and images.
The Main-TimeLine-View can be moved around, zoomed and scaled. The Date-Jump function lets you quickly manouver the whole TimeLine.

Why not making an online version of it? Because there are already many online only TimeLine apps out there. HyperTimeLines goes a different way: the focus on Privacy. The TimeLines are on your computer only and stays there. Of course, the TimeLines can be conveniently packed and send if needed, no question about that!
