To visualize wikipedia's tables has an educative purpose: making data perceptible and understandable[1].

Why visualize wikipedia's tables?[edit]

There is a need to visualize data and that is why mw:Extension:EasyTimeline is installed on Wikipedias. The need comes from those example contents: w:List of countries by population (graphical) or w:Range (music) or its french version.

Giving to users the ability to visualize data is not completely achieved with mw:Extension:EasyTimeline. That is why some users write workarounds such as w:de:Bundestagswahl 2002.

Proof of concept: graph extensions and off-site visualizations[edit]
