BCE Dates Trouble for Time Mapper


#1

Hello,
I’m having trouble formatting the dates for Timemapper. I’ve seen some projects that are also using BCE dates. I have the entries set as B.C. in googlesheets but they are not transferring as such on timemapper. How can I get my timeline straightened out?
Thanks

Can you share links to your sheets + TimeMapper?

Hi. There is a solution to this issue. You may put ‘-’ sign before the year B.C. For example: you have an entry starting from 600 B.C. till 570 B.C. so put -600 in the starting date and -570 in the ending one. this will show a negative timeline as well. :slight_smile:
