Ohloh Analysis...
Ohloh project report for Calizo
last updated 14.Apr 2008
Links related to calendar, scheduling, project management, biography, genealogy, timeline view, and zoomable interfaces.
Feel free to send your links in (via sourceforge messages to the calizo project to user s_fischer).
(The content that these links lead to is not under the responsibleness of the author of this page.)

The idea of this page is to collect everything that relates to a linear time view, a "time line", with events or time periods on it, providing several time scales by dynamically changing the zoom level. Therefore timescales of evolution and astronomy fall into the same category as biographic and family history time ranges, as well as project time scales and day to day tasks. Also future time events for planing and developing alternatives are in the scope. By linking files, folders or URLs to events and time ranges, a time line view also becomes a way of managing your personal information, a kind of temporal file manager.
