TMVis is a web service to provide visualizations of how individual webpages have changed over time. We leverage past research on summarizing collections of webpages with thumbnail-sized screenshots and on choosing a small number of representative archived webpages from a large collection. We offer four visualizations: Image Grid, Image Slider, Timeline, and Animated GIF. Embed codes for the Image Grid and Image Slider can be produced to include these visualizations on separate webpages. This tool can be used to allow scholars from various disciplines, as well as the general public, to explore the temporal nature of webpages.
