Adding Bar Graph to TimeMapper


#1

Continuing the discussion from About the TimeMapper category:

Basic answer is: yes, you could definitely adapt timemapper to do this. For example, to pull the size values and do a bar graph. It would take some coding work but not that hard to do.


#2

Would you be able to help me to do so or point me in the right direction? I basically would like the layout to look something like a drawing that I did, but since I am a new user, I am not able to upload the image, unfortunately. Would you be willing to take a look if I email it to you? Thank you so very much.
Best,
~Rob

@Rob unfortunately I don’t have much time to do technical assistance on this atm :-/ You are welcome to have a look at the code. If you were looking to sponsor the feature development we could ask to see if there was a developer up for doing this.


#4

I don’t know very much about code but I’m wondering if I take a look would I be able to customize the layout so that instead of the time line being at the bottom I would have a photo cropped into a circle with a couple lines of text? And on top, to the left of the map I would have a custom graph fed by Google?


#5

Yes, the page layout is pretty flexible. So just as we have a TimeMap, a Timeline and a Map only page layouts you could tweak like this. It will require some html + coding knowledge though and I won’t be able to provide much assistance right now :wink:

Thank you Rufus… I will try and ask around on other forums. Do you have any suggestions? Perhaps Github??


#7

Definitely looking through the code is a good idea. You’ll want to look at how the various different views are currently implemented.

Hi Rufus,
Can you tell me where I can find the code for it? Thanks!
