Visualization for spacio-temporal data from Wikidata.

This is a visualization prototype for large datasets of spacio-temporal data from Wikidata. Events for a selected time-interval are shown as aggregate points in a map like fashion. The datasets are currently in JSON format and can be generated with ViziDataPreprocessor.

Example data files in thie repository are versioned with Git LFS.

This project was partly an experiment to test the limits of heavy duty data processing with web technologies (javascript in particular). By it's nature it demands a lot of ressources, more so with Wikidatas growing size. Expect massive memory allocations and browser crashes, especially if you load bigger datasets (like "items").

A working demo can currently be viewed here (Includes only the Dataset "Deaths" because of filesize limitations).
