What is Quotidian? Quotidian is a new way to visualize time and events. Traditional timelines are limited to displaying events marked along a line. Quotidian displays events in a three dimensional space that can be scaled in all directions to show vast amounts of information.
Like a web browser, Quotidian is a program that you download and install on your desktop or laptop.  
Quotidian works with your Web browser to provide time indexes for information on the Web. It allows Web pages to link to events in timelines. Quotidian has two parts: a Viewer to display timelines of events and an Editor to construct timelines.
Quotidian events can be displayed with sound, images, video, and popup text. An event's data can be extended with text, citations, and geographical coordinates.
In the future Quotidian will be available on smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices.

Version 1.3 Released

Version 1.3 of Quotidian is now available. It includes many bug fixes and new features. Editing timespaces has been simplified by splitting event data from display data.

Freebase People Timespace

We have added a demo timespace that asks you for a person's name and uses the Freebase database (www.freebase.com) to automatically build a timespace for that person. It starts with a list of people to try, but you can enter any name you wish. If it can't find the person you ask for, it just asks again. A person's timespace is populated with set of events that is limited, for now, to an author's books, a musician's albums and groups. a politician's offices, and films by directors, writers and actors.
