What is a timeline?

A graphic timeline displays events chronologically and is a very effective way to visualize information over time. Whether for project management purposes, for legal cases, or to outline historical events, the visual organization of events as a sequence of points/milestones helps to simplify and illustrate complex contexts, making these easy to understand and to track.

Best uses for the timeline
  • Visualizing project schedules to help you and your team stay on track
  • Aiding legal cases, to show the relation of different facts to one another (for example, how a witness statement matches up with security footage)
  • Bringing together several events into one chronological order; non-linear storytelling (such as the order of events in the Marvel Comic movies franchise) can be confusing, so rearranging them in a timeline can give some clarity
  • Communicating historical data in a fun, visual and easily understandable way
