I'm looking for a web tool or software that can take information that I have formatted in a Google doc (or other cloud-based spreadsheet tool) and stick it on a map but also display it within a timeline. Does this exist?
I have a spreadsheet with dates, locations, images, and text that I would like to both map and display on an interactive timeline. I want this to be web-based. I want to use one spreadsheet to do this, ideally in the cloud, and ideally in Google Docs.
Tools that I have found that ALMOST work include:
1. Timemapper -- http://timemapper.okfnlabs.org/ -- it is almost perfect but the tool is relatively unsupported and creates glitches for certain date ranges.
2. Cloud ArcGIS -- almost in the cloud but not quite (the origin spreadsheet still has to live on a desktop somewhere), also the finished product is slow slow slow to load.
I am under the impression that this was a lot easier before Google changed something in its sharing settings (which happened, I think, within the last 6 months).
If a concrete example would make this easier, this
is the data that I am working with. I prefer free but am also ok if the solution costs money.
