LEARN ABOUT TIMELINES

What is a Timeline?

A timeline is a visual presentation or display of a list of events in chronological order. It is essentially a graphic that depicts a linear (sometimes curve) bar composed of labels containing dates in parallel to it.

Timelines are useful to visualize any type of development by providing the viewer an easy-to-understand history of events and helping to grasp the past and ongoing trends in that period of time.
