This is a product that EVERYONE has been
asking for! In partnership with TimeMaps Ltd of the United Kingdom, we are pleased to make available to
youTimeMaps - Maps that Move through Time!
Here are some of the requests we have been getting...
"I would like layered maps of one region. If each layer was a time
period, you could easily see the history of an area."
"I would like to see an integrated online map program that allows you to overlay historical maps to show how
geography lines (empire borders, country borders, etc.) have changed over time."
"I would like to have map overlays to show how countries have changed over the years."
"Here's my request... A program that allows the student to track progress of advancing armies or journeys or
immigration patterns or religion spreads would help bring understanding to an increased level."
"I would like a book of maps that goes step by step through the time line so, as I teach each important event, I
can show with ease and detail how the world changed."
"What I would like to see is an interactive, progressive, political map. What I mean is to be able to see how the
political boundaries of countries/territories/states/etc. change with a simple click of the mouse while the former
boundaries slowly fade away. To pick a time period and/or continent (or the entire globe, even) and then watch as
the boundaries change before your eyes would be so relational!"
And this is just the tip of the iceberg. We have received such requests for a few years now. And
we are now excited to tell you that these dynamic maps are now here!
So, what are TimeMaps exactly and how do they work?
The goal of TimeMaps is to communicate history in a truly engaging way. To do this,
we use a combination of timelines, historical maps and encyclopedic entries merged together to deliver
authoritative content that can be digested in an enjoyable way. TimeMaps are computer software files that use Flash
- a free program from Adobe. Maps are shown in chronological order at the click of a button and progress at your
timing, showing how civilizations, countries and continents have changed over time. Quizzes and encyclopedic
entries are included and can be turned on and off at your discretion. TimeMaps are a work in progress with many
Ancient and Medieval civilizations having reached completion with more historical topics on the
We've broken the TimeMaps into individual units
with coordinating Teacher Notes for the optimal teaching experience. This way, you can affordably purchase JUST the
maps that you are going to use this year. However, we have also grouped them together into a Collection so that you
can get them all at once at a tremendous cost savings. TimeMaps are available for both Mac and Windows computers;
for individual home use and for schools and co-ops.
