Placing labels on a timeline without overlap.
A parallel timelines layout (swimlanes) for representing state of time-series over time. Each timeline segment can be assigned a value on a color scale, either continuous (heatmap mode) or ordinal (for categorical representation). Time-series can be grouped into logical groups, represented as distinct sections. Allows for exploration using drag-to-zoom or a timeline brush.
This is an open-source tool that enables anyone to build visually,rich, interactive timelines. Beginners can create a timeline using nothing more than a Google spreadsheet. Experts can use their JSON skills to create custom installations, while keeping TimelineJS’s core look and functionality.
This is a library for making a chronology timeline out of events on a horizontal timescale. From a list of dates and events, it can generate a graphical representation of schedules, historical events, deadlines, and more. It requires raphael.js to function.
The library is designed to be easy to use, to handle large amounts of dynamic data, and to enable manipulation of and interaction with the data. The library consists of the components DataSet, Timeline, Network, Graph2d and Graph3d.
The SIMILE project of MIT develops open source tools to process and visualize all kinds of digital data. One of their widgets you can integrate in your own website and/or pair with other applications.
You can create your own timeline for your personal website or portfolio. This timeline based on CSS3 and jQuery. It consist of very simple interface for editing ,modern design and various transitions styles. Included are over 40+ animations, 10+ styles.
Great stuff, thanks!

see as well, openbexi timeline which is is a data-driven interactive timeline for visualizing temporal data.
An alternative timeline visualization tool to consider is KronoGraph: https://cambridge-intelligence.com/kronograph/ It’s a developer toolkit for building interactive timelines – ideal for investigative use cases
I find it very odd that nearly all of these example implementations (with the exception of the very first) depict time going from left to right, when in fact all computer browsers display scrollable events from top to bottom.
Nice Stuff, checkout some jQuery timeline plugins I mentioned on my blog.
Yeah, nice timelines.
