On a side-note, it might be revealing to see a combination of Google’s location & time axis results. You’d enter, say, “Albert Einstein,” and see a Google Maps illustration with placemarks labeled with years, and arrows pointing out the movement during the years (the locations at which Einstein lived, as well as otherwise important places in his life). This could also be turned into a map widget with a slidable control, again showing different placemarks – e.g. a person’s or an army’s movement – over time.
