Interactive Language Timeline Project

The LLC recently built a scrollable timeline interface for displaying data points, images and audio clips related to language in the Pacific Northwest. The interface uses only HTML and CSS (no JS) and offers modal/popups for each time segment. The timeline is coded to allow modular copying/pasting and then editing of elements. If you are interested in using this timeline for an academic project, please contact us and we would be happy to share a copy with you.
