The timeline of the events as shown in the four movies, Jurassic Park: The Game and accessory material.
- Isla Nublar is discovered by Spanish Navigator Diego Fernandez. It is named ‘Cloud Island’ by Nicolas de Huelva.
In or before 1973Edit
- February 16 - Sanjay Masrani establishes the corporation Masrani with the development of Mascom, an ambitious telecommunications network located in Bombay, India.
- Mascom utilizes fiber-optic communications into telecommunications network.
1981 - 1982Edit
- While running the Animal Kingdom with Robert Muldoon, John Hammond begins laying the groundwork for Jurassic Park.
- Hammond hires Dr. Laura Sorkin for a proof of concept and shows InGen that extinct DNA can be extracted from mosquitoes trapped in amber.
- Isla Sorna is leased from the Costa Rican Government to InGen. InGen builds several facilities on the island to create and raise dinosaurs.
- Dr. Henry Wu makes a proposal to make the dinosaurs planned for Jurassic Park at a faster rate by filling in the sequence gaps with frog DNA as opposed to Dr. Sorkin's idea of creating the whole genome from just solely the DNA of a dinosaur. Dr. Wu is ultimately chosen by InGen to be the chief geneticist instead of Sorkin as his method would be easier, faster, and less costly. From this point on, Laura began to be resentful of Hammond, Wu, and InGen due to this decision.
- First prehistoric animal was brought back to life, using an artificial ovum.
- Tatsuo Technology is founded in Tokyo, Japan.
- Jess sneaks into a Tiger exhibit when her father works at the San Diego Zoo. According to Gerry it "scared the daylights out of [me]".
- Jurassic Park: San Deigo is canceled. Hammond instead decides to build Jurassic Park on Isla Nublar, a neighboring island to Isla Sorna. He leases the island from the Costa Rican government the same year.
- Nima and the Bribri Tribe are removed from Isla Nublar by the Costa Rican government and moved to the mainland in the ghettos; in a capacity that is unknown, Oscar was involved. In 1987, the last descendant of the tribe was resettled off the island.
- July- Eric Kirby is born in Enid, Oklahoma.
- Construction of Jurassic Park begins.
- The first mature animals are moved from Site B to Isla Nublar.
- Spring - Teaser trailer: first fossilised mosquito discovered in a piece of Amber from a mine in South America.
- September 20 - After Subjects 4x, 6x, and 7x fail after 6 days due to karyolysis believed to be caused by having genetic structures incompatible with the Yellow-banded poison dart frog used in their creation, Dr. Henry Wu decides to use Common reed frog instead for creating Velociraptors. He would also use this in the creation of other dinosaur genera. Unknown to him and the other InGen scientists was that the reed frog as well other amphibians used in creating dinosaurs allowed them to change sex, thus allowing them to reproduce.
- Febuary 13 - Dr. Henry Wu discovers high collective intelligence in Velociraptor clones.
- Before June 12th - Gerry and Sarah Harding speak.
- Sanjay Masrani, the founder of Masrani Global Corporation, dies. His company is inherited by his son, Simon.

- Laura Sorkin is given the Isla Nublar Field Lab. At some point, she obtains a field assistant in David Banks. She eventually breeds Troodon in her field lab. Hammond later orders the Troodons to be destroyed, but Sorkin refuses and studies them in private.
Before June 1993Edit
- Oscar and Billy (possibly with D-Caf) go on a mission to Nicaragua where most of their fellow mercenaries die and those that may have survived but have not been found are left behind, with Oscar forcing Billy to leave.
- Early June - Building continues on Isla Nublar until Jophery, a gatekeeper, is significantly injured (or killed) by a Velociraptor during a transfer to the holding pen. Major construction comes to a halt on Isla Nublar leaving many structures unfinished until Hammond receives endorsements from outside opinions, which his investors demand.
- Gennaro visits Mano de Dios Amber Mine and meets with Juanito Rostagno; Hammond, supposed to meet him there, does not arrive as he is with his daughter, who's divorce proceedings have begun. Around this time, Gennaro invites Ian Malcolm to visit Isla Nublar.

- ↑ Malcolm states that "three" deaths were covered up. Jophery's death is known of - that is why the Endorsement team was on the Island, so that doesn't count. The only other people killed were Gennaro, Muldoon, John Arnold and Nedry; since Nedry's death is not mentioned in The Lost World, the three "covered up" deaths have to be the others.

- ↑ The date of the Isla Nublar Incident of 2015 is disputed. Several sources imply that it is in the Summer, around June or July. In the message "RE: INDOMINUS REX" written by Simon Masrani he says that he will see the Indominus in late May or early June. Simon later annouces his visit in June of 2015. The blog post as well as the Masrani News for May 2015 say that the Indominus Paddock will open July. Since the events of Jurassic World take place 3 weeks before the paddock's opening, this means that the 2015 Incident happened around June-July 2015. However, when Gray and Zach are at their home before they take the ferry to the dinosaur park it is snowing and Christmas music is playing, suggesting that it is in December. Some have concluded that it takes place on December 18 due to the atmosphere mentioned above and due to the presence of an increasing moon the night of the incident.  Until any official word gives the date of the incident, it is unknown.
