Simile Widgets is a set of open source web widgets for visualizing data & content.

They are actually a spin-off from the Simile Project & improved over time by a community of open-source developers.

Currently, it includes 4 widgets:

Timeline

Simile Timeline

Timeline is for creating an interactive display of events within a timeframe.

It can be dragged or controlled with the mouse wheel & events can be clicked to see the details.

Timeplot

Simile Timeplot

Timeplot is a DHTML widget for plotting time series easily.

On mouse-overs, it can display the values interactively (it works with the same data format that Timeline supports).

Runway

Simile Runway

Runway is a Flash-based implementation of the popular iTunes-like coverflow.

The colors, fonts, reflection & transit,in values can be configured easily. Also, it can fire events to update the web page's Javascript.

Exhibit

It is for creating web pages with advanced text search and filtering functionalities, with interactive maps, timelines, & other visualizations.

You can find more details on a previously published WRD post on Exhibit.
