High Performance

Built using the same engine as our Timeline Of Everything, HistropediaJS offers a huge performance advantage over other timeline renderers - ideal for visualising large data sets.

View Performance Example »

‘Drop in’ to any website

Timelines are rendered in HTML5 CANVAS and require no CSS, making it easy to embed timelines into existing webpages or create a full screen experience.
