Homo Diaspora is a map of human evolution. Currently it only shows human fossils on a map, grouped by age and species.
You can either view all the fossils at once, or browse through a preset number of intervals.
2.5D Map – done:
The map is continuous on the y-axis (horizontally), so that the largest empty part of the map is always left out.
Genetics – in progress:
Genetic information will be included, such as contributions from other human genomes to ours, and the migration routes after Homo sapiens left Africa.
Neanderthal and Denisova admixture has been included.
I want to customize the map to illustrate contemporary climates.
A timeline, possibly with highlights, with a slider for advancing the map.
Animations showing populations and gene travel coming and going would be cool, should be able to do something like that with JQuery.
A visual representation of the human family tree, I’ll see exactly how I work it in
Ideally, eventually it’ll turn into something like wikipedia, where everyone can contribute to the database.
I’m going to use this post as a general to-do list, so if I think of anything else, I’ll add it here.
Suggestions and criticism are more than welcome!
