Last update : may 5rd, 2011 (262 historical events in 10 categories)
I just produced a basis for a timeline mixing some historical datas I wanted to compare : economics, medias, political events, global context, demography, etc. related with Turkey’s and Istanbul’s history. The purpose of this little work is to contextualize on a century scale the apparition of TV medias in Turkey and in Istanbul metropolis, and also to share with other searchers a timeline resuming Turkey’s important events.
This chart would need more further precisions, especially on sources, and would need more informations on medias major events (legislation and so on). So this article should be updated regularly…
NA : This article and the chart are in english because the sources were so.
The events are classified between 10 families of events :
01 – INTERNATIONAL CONTEXT
02 – ECONOMY
03 – POLITICS
04 – MEDIAS
05 – ISTANBUL GOVERNMENT
06 – INDUSTRIES
07 – CULTURE
08 – TRANSPORTS
09 – URBANIZATION
10 – BUSINESS DISTRICT

The previous timeline being quite large here comes some focuses on different topics :
Here comes a video tutorial explaining how to make a timeline with Excel. I just adapted the example to historical events, and added the demographic chart above the timeline.
