HistoryViz provides a new perspective on a certain kind of textual data, in particular the data available in the Wikipedia, where different entities are described and put in historical perspective. Instead of browsing through pages each describing a certain topic, we can look at the relations between entities and events connected with the selected entities. The presented solution implemented in HistoryViz provides user with a graphical interface allowing viewing events concerning the selected person on a timeline and viewing relations to other entities as a graph that can be dynamically expanded.
