An Introduction to Simile Exhibit

For the past decade, Exhibit, originally developed as part of the SIMILE projects at MIT, has provided a simple, but powerful means for scholars to analyse and display the relationships between their data, using timelines, and maps and with little or no programming experience.

  2. Connecting Your Exhibit to Google Docs
  3. Working With Spatial Data

There are a number of additional external resources available. A select few mentioned during this tutorial are:
