generate detailed visualizations of succession timelines

Live Demo Get it on Github

Dynasty is a simple way to generate visualizations of succession timelines, like the Roman Emperors, US Presidents or the British Monarchy.

Using the magical powers of D3.js, it renders data from two CSV files to an SVG, automatically determining things like the size of the visualization and the range of time to be visualized.

To make your own visualizations using Dynasty, all you have to do is prepare the data in the two CSV files: One for the people in your timeline, and one for the dynasties they're part of. It's as easy as making an Excel chart, but way more powerful.

Here's an example:

emperors.csv (illustration)
dynasties.csv (illustration)
