Abstract: Events may be best understood in the context of other events. We can call a set of related events a timeline, because of the temporal ordering. Even such timelines are best understood in the context of other timelines. To facilitate the exploration of a collection of timelines and events, a visualization tool has been developed that structures the user's browsing across events and timelines. In this model, each event is accompanied by a text description and links to related resources. In particular, this system provides a browsing interface for digitized historical newspapers.
