"There is no lack of history resources on the Internet. Historical web sites, blogs, maps, videos, and animations abound. But two things are missing:
- A way to tie it all together: text, images, video, audio, historical maps, and animation
- A way for anyone to create and share multimedia, animated historical scenarios without having to know programming, graphics, animation, or digital cartography.
If it helps to understand that this was happening here while that was happening there, History in Motion is the tool for you."
The above comes directly from their website.
