Sahul Time

SahulTime is the original prototype that gave rise to the Temporal Earth project.

SahulTime placed Australia's archaeological record in a visual context of coastline change and hypotheses of human migration. The paradigm of the 'geotagged photograph' is extended to represent how a particular place has changed through time, via landscape reconstructions and dynamic archaeological diagrams. Using the zoomable timeline, the user can now explore topics spanning a range of timescales, from dinosaurs in Gondwana, to the building of railways across modern Australia. Developed by Matthew Coller using Adobe Flash.
