History of the world in 100 Seconds (according to wikipedia)

A clever animated visualization created by Gareth Lloyd and Tom Martin.

Animating Wikipedia articles about events in world history on a map

14,000 Wikipedia articles about historic events are plotted on a map, in the order they occurred. The result is a fascinating, if not slightly biased (towards Europe and the USA) view of world history. The map doesn’t include any labels or land boundaries, making it a little confusing at first, but as more locations are tagged a world map gradually builds up.

Keep an eye on the bottom right hand corner for the year.
