Chronozoom is a zoomable interactive timeline that covers the entire span of time, from the Big Bang, to the time of the dinosaurs, to the present. ChronoZoom was first demonstrated at the 97th Annual Faculty Research Lecture series at the University of California, Berkeley on April 29th, 2010.

ChronoZoom was originally developed as a term project by student Roland Saekow in the Big History course taught by professor Walter Alvarez. Saekow and Alvarez worked with Microsoft Research and Microsoft Live Labs thanks to connections made possible by UC Berkeley’s Office of Intellectual Property and Industry Research Alliances (IPIRA).
