History displayed visually

Recommended Posts

Few people realise they are living through history.

I wonder how many people realised they were living through momentous times while they were happening.

 

I often think people gain a poor world view based on their very short lifespan and experiences.

 

This is an amazing site: http://www.visualizingeconomics.com/

 

I think some of the images from this site and others put things into perspective.

 

For example, from http://www.visualizingeconomics.com/2008/0...rice-1791-2007/

 

GoldUS_1791to2007_with_wars.gif

 

 

And from http://www.visualizingeconomics.com/2008/0...e-of-world-gdp/

 

World_GDP_Last_500_Years.gif

 

 

And finally what must be the most amazing chart, from http://www.kk.org/cooltools/archives/000453.php

 

4000 years of world history

No I am wrong, it is not the most amazing chart.

 

Here are some amazing charts :blink: :blink:

 

A collection of images of various periods of history

Here are a couple of bits as examples:

 

Timeline_of_the_Roman_Empire_exampl.gif

 

Timeline_of_US_History_1492to1750_e.gif

 

 

 

Then there is this:

 

Grand Unified Timeline of Human History

And this looks just amazing. I wish there were bigger pictures:

Of course, if McCain and Palin win the election, Palin will have it banned and silently replaced with a Creationist version.

Steve,

Done :D

And I've added a couple of bits as examples to encourage people to look at them.

Yes I noticed that :blink:

 

Did your post previous to mine always contain the 'native / non-native population' chart when I posted about it.

 

If it was, I'm just amazed I missed it in your post... Old age, I suppose... :lol:

 

Ahem.

 

So, er... sorry, were you saying something? :huh:

No you're OK, not senile yet :P:lol:

 

I added the two as I thought otherwise people might not investigate that link.

And yes I picked the one you mentioned :D
