  1. Herein I plan to post pics of my modest collection of Mazon Creek fossils, but first a question. I found this nice little map in a paper by LoBue (2010) of the general Mazon Creek area, showing the location of the numbered mines/pits. Could any of you who know the area and the fossils explain in a nutshell which areas produce the Essex Fauna and which produce the Braidwood Fauna (or flora - maybe I should say 'Biota')? I know Pit 11 is the main source of Essex fauna (Essexella etc.), but is it the only place Essex fauna occur, and those other pits produce only Braidwood biota? Are they relatively exclusive of one another or is there some crossover? I work best with maps, so if anyone can annotate the map to make things clearer, please do. Also I'd like to know where the county lines are on this map. In the following fossil pics, I have incomplete info as they all came from dealers, auctions and such, I've never been able to collect the site myself, so the info I receive is typically incomplete and sometimes wrong. If anyone could narrow down any of the location info for any of the fossils, I'd appreciate it, and please correct anything that is incorrect!
  2. Dinosaurs mapped in the UK

    Linked below is a map of dinosaurs discovered in the UK if anyone is interested. It is important to bear in mind that this is not every fossil. Not all fossils discovered are dinosaurs. And these discoveries are almost never full skeletons. They often get reclassified decades later once more data becomes available. I couldn't figure out how to embed the map in this post so posting a link to it instead. The link functionality on this forum created a completely different map showing different information non-dinosaur related. The search bar doesn't work either so ignore that. https://www.arcgis.com/apps/Minimalist/index.html?appid=60e54e6f6fa64da8a14a0c5129dd783a The map was created by mapping and analytics company Esri UK . Comments from an individual on this map (not 100% accurate): Sorry, but not a very accurate depiction of Welsh dinosaurs. You've missed off the lovely jaw bone found in 1898 at Stormy Down, and all mention of the footprints which include the most important Late Triassic trackways in Europe. Also, it's very misleading to include the Sphenodontid reptile Clevosaurus which is not anything to do with dinosaurs. Many, many grammatical errors throughout too! The interactive map is fairly poor and misleading. Then to finish, you tempt us with historic Welsh geologists but only mention Dorothea Bate when you could have included so many others. Finally - your list of where to collect dinosaur fossils in the UK includes a lot of places where the rocks are far too young, and you'll never find any dinosaurs, ever! Even your very first sentence is wrong. Dinosaurs died out 66 million years ago, not 65. I'm not just being picky, but if you're going to write something like this, you should try to get more of your facts right, plea Sorry, but not a very accurate depiction of Welsh dinosaurs.

Some engineers have created an interactive map to navigate the overwhelming amount of data created by the Paleobiology Database, a massive collection of information about fossils and related research. The map essentially plots the location of every fossil ever found by scientists, from early mammals to dinosaurs. (Not sure how accurate and up to date it is but still useful). To search the map, you can click on different geologic eras, the strata that the organism was found in, or search the specific taxonomy you're looking for. The map shows the continents as they are today by default, but when you click on a different geological era they rearrange themselves, showing how dramatically tectonic plates have shift over millions of years. If you aren't looking for anything specific, just click around randomly and see what pops up. You can zoom in on any part of the world and see what kinds of fossils have been found there. ____ ___ .-~. /_"-._ `-._~-. / /_ "~o\ :Y \ \ / : \~x. ` ') ] Y / | Y< ~-.__j / ! _.--~T : l l< /.-~ / / ____.--~ . ` l /~\ \<|Y / / .-~~" /| .

  3. Texas, a short while back

    I liked the uncluttered format of this pic,decided to post it
  4. South Dakota Map

    (Posted in SD forum as well, feel free to move) I thought this would be an appropriate addition- my hope is that this map will allow forum users to plan trips to SD! Threw this thing together for you guys in some spare time at work. The map shows the extent of common fossil bearing strata in the state of South Dakota, as well as some "no-go" areas- reservations and the like. If you guys want a certain area zoomed in on let me know! FossilsSD.pdf
  5. Fossil Bearing units map

  6. Wanted to share a map of potential spots to hunt for fossils in the US. Not complete by any means but it's a start! Just planning our fossil hunting road trip this summer and though others might be doing the same Happy hunting!
  7. Very Cool interactive map

    Great interactive map of worldwide taxa from the Paleobiology Database, a massive collection of information about fossils and related research. https://paleobiodb.org/navigator/
  8. Hawthorne Group question

    I have a question. So I live in Florida, and looking a the map I am attaching I live in the Hawthorne Group. So.... if I dig in a creek am I likely to find fossils? I'm trying to look at these geological maps and distinguish areas which are likely to yield fossils. Particularly shark teeth. Can anyone school me up in this department? Thank you!!
  9. Anyone got a good online resource for data in the Hilton Head area? All the maps I find are not viewable because of file type or too small to be useful (700px x 600px). Thanks
  10. U.K. Fossil map

    I did post this a while ago on another forum but it might be useful here. Someone (I have no idea who) has spent time and effort to make this map of uk locations and put it up on Google maps. It's been useful for me. Wouldn't it be cool if the map was expanded worldwide! https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=zKkgpgmdqasY.kL_ZtZbMvmag
  11. Does anyone know where I can get my hands on a decent stratigraphic wall map of North America? Or a stratigraphic atlas of the United States? I've seen very pretty ones, but I can't find one that is commercially available. Thanks in advance!
  12. This is a great resource to see where "scientifically" document fossils have been located, with documentation. Just click on launch navigator,you can filter over the map by any search term or by time! https://paleobiodb.org/#/
  13. Here's the latest on molecular biology / biotechnology advances and our furry friend, the Woolly Mammoth. Unlike most dinosaur fossils, Woolly Mammoth remains are often found in frozen, less-deteriorated states in Siberia; and often contain viable proteins such as collagen, from which genetic sequences can be produced. In ice condition: Amazingly preserved woolly mammoth found frozen in Siberia after 39,000 YEARS goes on display in Tokyo http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2358695/Woolly-mammoth-frozen-Siberia-39-000-YEARS-goes-display-Tokyo-woolly.html Woolly mammoth discovery raises exciting possibilities http://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/woolly-mammoth-discovery-raises-exciting-possibilities-1.1386398 The quest is to clone a mammoth.

  14. I just found a new iPhone app I thought people might could make use of. It's called iGeoLog, and it allows you to build cutaways and make notes in just a few minutes. You can also use location services to mark the exact spot the log was built. The app allows you to email and save the logs. Great tool if you ask me. Here's a very simple example that I just made up to illustrate.....you can change the dimensions and contours to whatever fits your needs.
