To give an indication of the type of user interface we have in mind, we show on this page some screen mockups. Please bear in mind that these have been created purely to illustrate the concepts. They will change as we refine the design.
See also the technical glossary.
Opening the project
On opening the project, the user selects a specific Viewpoint or perspective on the data. For genealogical research this will typically include the Personal Events Explorer. Other Viewpoints can be selected for different Research Types (RTs)
Personal Events Explorer
This screen lists all Events that are associated with a target Person
Personal Relatives Explorer
Up to five generations can be shown, with the target Person being placed in any selected generation.
Personal Connections Explorer
Lists all connection to a target Person, based on user-selected connection types.
Lists Event details. This shows an example of research focused on buildings.
Event Associates Explorer
Lists Persons who are associated with a target Event. Can be used similarly for other Research Types.
