Museums worldwide are incorporating interactive technology to enhance their displays. This project worked with the British Museum's Department of Coins and Medals to adapt and modify the MIT SIMILE Timeline and Timeplot widgets to better display the results of the Money in Africa research. This project created functioning Timeline and Timeplot widgets with accompanying user manuals and recommendations by obtaining financial and historical data, conducting focus group and visitor testing, and meeting with our sponsors and the Web Development team.
