This project is JUST for the timeline piece and not the design of the website.
The dots represent chronological media that needs to be place on the line according to the XML dataset. The timeline will be given a start date and end date and the dots representing media (also with assigned dates in between the start and end dates) should be auto adjusted to fill the span of the line.
There a few interactions that we would like it to have, such as the box on the timeline bar should be able to slide left and right. As it slides the magnified line below should slide showing a magnification of what is under the preview box which will slide in/out of view respectively. Likewise a user can slide the magnified line itself left and right and the preview box on the timeline will adjust accordingly. The XML dataset will contain all the specific information for each media element, including the location of the thumbnail image.
Each piece of media needs an overlay of some sort to easily identify what type of media it is. (ie., image, video, document, audio, etc)
The loading of the media line should be optimized so that the items in view load first and then the the ones out of view afterwards OR an ajax method of only loading media images as they slide into view would also be acceptable (like google maps).
When a media image is hovered over, (I would like to consult with you on this)... Currently the mockup shows a details balloon displaying a summary about that media. The other idea is to have a larger box fade in over the timeline which will give more room and may use the space better. The data will be available via the xml dataset. Let's talk about this a bit more.
The background should be skinnable, the location of the background image will also be passed in by the XML dataset. We will be able to provide the current PSDs for the the one in the mockup.
That's about it. Please contact me with any questions you may have to be able to bid on this project.
