Make History Allows You to View and Share Images, Videos and Stories About 9/11


Today marks the eighth anniversary of the terrorist attacks on 11 September 2001 and The National September 11 Memorial & Museum has created Make History, a website that allows you to view and share images, videos and stories about 9/11. The website uses Google Maps Street View to show how a particular area looks today, with a user-created image or video superimposed over it.

All events are plotted on a timeline, which begins at “before 9/11”, goes through the day itself (which is subdivided into categories such as “First tower hit”, “Second tower hit”, etc.) and then extends after 9/11, showing images taken days and even years after the attack. The images and videos are also plotted on a map, showing exactly where they were taken.
