Dipity search and visualisation

Posted on: June 15, 2009

Dipity is a tool that could be very useful in education. I did a search on A(H1N1) and this is what I got. It’s an interactive timeline comprising of various resources from the WWW!

Dipity helps make temporal and visual sense of searches. This organises the plethora of information that typically results from a Web search and makes it easier to manage. Better still, the information can be reorganised into a list, flipbook or a map to suit the needs of the searcher!

I wonder if Google might acquire Dipity some day…

I would also recommend looking at for social timelines, where you can add people to your timeline posts and have the posts come up on their timelines too.

So if you go out on a trip with your friends, you can now simply upload your photos, add their names and the trip post becomes a part of their timelines too. There are over 300,000 existing timeline that you can join – check this for a sample:

Dipity and Lifeblob are great tools. So is LifeSnapz,, if you desire a more private way to capture, share and explore your life events with friends and family. Timelines and maps provide fun way to explore events and create an ongoing life record.
