History Flow

IBM’s history flow project: visualizing dynamic, evolving documents and

the interactions of multiple collaborating authors.

And as online collaboration becomes increasingly common, we see more and more ever-evolving group-authored texts. This site is a preliminary report on a simple visual technique, history flow, that provides a clear view of complex records of contributions and collaboration.
