On my website, I need a format that can handle a timeline of a history of enormous size conveniently. I already split up the entire timeline into separate pages for periods.
Now there's something that never lets me calm down.
Every period depicts events of multiple locations or groups, and I think, it can be transparent only if all are shown altogether.
I dropped the idea of horizontal timeline immediately, as my website is built on an engine and scrolling horizontally within it would be a nightmare.
On the other hand, vertical timeline seems to be extremely crowded, at least the way I implemented it - I created spreadsheets in MS Excel and imported those to the site.
Is it an acceptable solution, or is there something better on the outside? If there is, ho can I improve it?
