Filter by Event type

Users can narrow down what type of events appear in the timeline or the map by selecting from a list on the left side of the page.

  1. Select the type of events you would like to view.
    Events are categorized into five different types: bibliographical, biographical, literary, political, social, and mixed.

  2. If you would like to view multiple event types, check multiple checkboxes.

    The check box at the top of the “Event type” field tells the user how many of the filters have been checked.

  3. View the events that belong in the selected event type categories in the timeline or the map.
    Once the users checks one of these options, the timeline and map will automatically narrow down the results to events that belong in that category(ies).

  4. To reset the event type filter, uncheck the top checkbox (or individually selected boxes) or select “Reset All Filters” option above the map.
