One last thing about the timemaps

The projects are coming along nicely but I've come accross a small fix that I think most of you will benefit from. The timeline code is set up in intervals of months on the top and years on the bottom. If your data points (dates) are far apart (and most of them are) you can change the top interval to years or even decades- just replace Timeline.DateTime.MONTH with Timeline.DateTime.YEAR or imeline.DateTime.DECADE. Then change the next band Timeline.DateTime.YEAR to Timeline.DateTime.DECADE or Timeline.DateTime.CENTURY.

You can change the colors by changing this part of the code:

this.ether = {
backgroundColors: [

#B27 is that purple and #367 is the turquoise. Feel free to change them- here is a website with colorcodes:

Adding Pictures to your Pop Up Bubbles on the TimeMap

You need to use escaped html to add images to your bubbles in the timeline project- The CDATA tag doesn't seem to work -here is a little tool that will write them for you:


so you put <img src=?image.jpg?/> in the box and it will write the escaped html for you- just paste it into the description either before or after your description text (with a space of course) and it should add your pic as long as it is in the root folder of your webserver.

TimeMap Lab Followup

I'll post all of the documents from today's lab, including the powerpoint, to the Blackboard course. I am following up on the Google Maps Key issue and suspect it has something to do with the courses server so don't stress over that issue at this point in the project. If you uploaded a TimeMap_Lab.html page to your webserver folder and you don't see ANYTHING then your problem is NOT the maps key. I looked at everyone's folder's this afternoon and noticed the following problem:

The following link to the TimeMap folder you uploaded today was corrupted by Dreamweaver (Dreamweaver thinks it is really smart and tries to add information sometimes that you don't want- like the path to the folder on the desktop instead of just the folder name- that happped to a number of you) The code should look like this:

<script src="timemap/timemap_full.pack.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

and NOT:

<script src="TimeMap Lab CD/timemap/timemap_full.pack.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

In the museum, there is a hall with historical artifacts, as well as archaeological discoveries dating back to the times of the Roman Empire. This museum has a very interesting photo archive, and even exhibitions of contemporary art are often held in it.

timeline, GIS, and Rome

Here's a timeline I think you'll be interested to see. It's from a project at the Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities. The problem being addressed is to show changes to the water systems in ancient Rome over a period of years. Link below.

ATH Community,
Hello. Please, note the following announcement for a newly added, on-line, refereed article available via
The Waters of Rome project.
If you have not looked at the resources there in the last several months, I'd encourage you to see the relatively new version of the Timeline (with Typology as well as time period selection options) available via the primary URL:
, after you check out the article.

Subject: "Rome's Uncertain Tiberscape", from The Waters of Rome

Kay Bea Jones, "Rome's Uncertain Tiberscape: Tevereterno and the Urban Commons"

THE WATERS OF ROME, an occasional on-line publication of refereed articles that investigate the history of water and its infrastructure in the city of Rome, is pleased to announce publication of "Rome's Uncertain Tiberscape: Tevereterno and the Urban Commons", by Kay Bea Jones, Associate Professor of Architecture at the Austin E. Knowlton School of Architecture at The Ohio State University. In this article, Prof. Jones examines the potential significance of a multi-disciplary art project, "Tevereterno" on the Tiber River in Rome to expand environmental awareness in the urban context.

This article is available as a free pdf file that you can download at:

THE WATERS OF ROME is published by ?Aquae Urbis Romae: the Waters of the City of Rome? - an interactive cartographic history of the relationship between hydrological and hydraulic systems and their impact on the urban development of Rome, Italy, from 753 BC to the present day. Aquae Urbis Romae examines the intersection between natural hydrological elements including springs, rain, streams, marshes, and the Tiber River, and hydraulic elements including aqueducts, fountains, sewers, bridges, conduits, etc., that together create a single integrated water infrastructure system for Rome.

Scholars are invited to submit articles in English (or Italian with a publishable English translation provided by the author) on any aspect of the hydrological or hydraulic history of Rome, from the prehistoric to the present day. Articles that investigate water and water infrastructure within a social, cultural, technological, or administrative context are particularly welcome. All articles under consideration will be read by the editor and at least two outside reviewers who are experts in Roman topography, archaeology, history of technology, geography, urban or architectural history. Authors shall be responsible for obtaining copyright permissions for all maps and images included with their article, and each author retains copyright for any work published at ?Aquae Urbis Romae: the Waters of the City of Rome?.

Joe's timeline

My apologies for the late post. The conversion from PC to Mac and a couple other kinks have prevented me from revealing this masterpiece...until now.

I'm so glad you mentioned learning to use a card catalog! I remember the feeling of POWER that came with learning this esoteric system that gave me all the information I could ever imagine needing. I still feel nostalgic for card catalogs, and usually pocket a few cards that Rush-Rhees puts out as scrap paper.

I agree, that pdf files seem more official and appear to be more like "books" on your computer than text documents. It's interesting that you included pdf files in your timeline! Pdf files are harder to edit and are usually more than one page, which gives them a really "published" feel. Now, even just with reader programs, we can mess with pdf files more than before. (Is that true, or have I just learned how to mess with them???)

Pdf files and their associations might tell us what we think books are. Books are bound more permanently, and are presented in a way that you aren't usually supposed to edit. Is this true?

Andrea's Timeline

Hi everyone! Here?s the link to my timeline, which begins in 1981 and goes through 2008:

I?ve noticed that if you click on the data points in the top bar of the timeline, the size of the bubbles will adjust automatically in order to fit the picture and/or description?as opposed to the bottom, where you may have to use a scrollbar within the bubble to see all of the content.

I am so jealous of your She-ra magazines. My brother had Castle Grayskull and we were a bit obsessed with He-man. My magazines were dorky: Hightlights and Ranger Rick.

I think it's interesting that "ebay" has its own event bullet. One website really can change SO MUCH in our world, and ebay is definitely one of those kinds of sites. I know it totally changed my concept of shopping, and then when I became a seller, of what it means to have a business. Ebay is now like its own planet.
