W.O. Mitchell Timeline (2014)

WO Mitchell Timeline being used by the visiting elementary students. Photography by Dave Brown, University of Calgary Photography Services.

In this project we created a timeline of events related W.O. Mitchell's life and works. Research material and images were gathered by Alexis Poeschek under the supervision of Annie Murray. I developed the web-based, interactive timeline using these research materials.

The timeline was developed for the TFDL's main floor media wall (8 1080p LCD TVs in a 2X4 array) with interaction on the touch table in front of the display. I also developed a variation without the touch table for use in the TFDL's Visualization Studio (16' X 6' display with 9600X3600 pixel resolution). Created with D3 (v3) and jQuery (v2).
