This is an interactive digital atlas for the paleontology time periods: Neogene, Pennsylvanian, Ordovician.
The Digital Atlas of Ancient Life Electronic Field Guide App is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation to principal investigators Dr. Bruce Lieberman (University of Kansas), Dr. Alycia Stigall (Ohio University), and Dr. Jonathan Hendricks (San Jose State University). The grant is titled, "Digitizing Fossils to Enable New Syntheses in Biogeography - Creating a PALEONICHES-TCN" (TCN stands for Thematic Collections Network).
This project is related to a broader natural history specimen digitization effort supported by the National Resource for Advancing Digitization of Biodiversity Collections (ADBC) called Integrated Digitized Biocollections, or iDigBio.
The main portal page for the Digital Atlas of Ancient Life project can be accessed at www.digitalatlasofancientlife.org. For additional information about the project, please see the recently published open-access paper by Hendricks, Stigall, and Lieberman (2015) in Palaeontologia Electronica. The individual websites can be accessed at: Ordovician Atlas, Pennsylvanian Atlas, and Neogene Atlas.
