Learn here how to use table, timeline and map to analyze your Entities.
Geovistory offers you three tools that allow you to analyze your project's entities:
  • Table: the most common analysis report. It concerns one or several kind of Entity (e.g. Person, Geographical place, Builtwork, Group) and its relative properties distributed in the different columns.
  • Timeline: if you work with dates, you may want to view your information on a timeline.
  • Map with timeline: if your information is associated with both a place and a date, then it is interesting to combine a map and a timeline.

Choose your Entity

In order to analyse your entities, you have to choose which one you want to investigate: Persons, Geographical Place, Unique Source Object, Publication Exemplar, etc.
Tables can support multiple entities, unlike timelines and maps which are centered around a single entity.

Explore your Entities

After having chosen the Entity to be invested, it is necessary to select the information which one seeks to recover in the columns of the table.
Choose between two kind of information to be registered : entity attributes or path to related entities.
Give a name to your column, add as many columns as necessary or increase the number of tables.
