New Paleowire Feature | Browse the World of Paleontology

An interactive world map is now available on the Paleowire homepage (full-size) and on every article page (small-size). It is reproduced below for an easy “test-drive”. You may click on 255 countries and ocean areas in order to access regional pages displaying regional articles and (soon) a list of useful local links.

This new feature aims to facilitate a quick, convenient and enjoyable world tour of paleontology for the entire paleontological community, students, and the general public. As Paleowire progresses and new articles are added, a growingly rich idea of the Paleontology being made around the world should emerge and, hopefully, contribute to a clearer idea of international practices, practitioners, and patrimony. The list of regional links will be available soon and will be maintained in constant update.

Paleowire is celebrating its 3 month anniversary. We are working continuously in order to bring our vision to life. New features and sections are being constructed and will be presented shortly. Here, we are all amateurs in web design. So, if you happen to spot a bug, something that doesn’t seem right or appears broken, please give us a hand and drop us a line.

Thanks for being a part of our community.

“Test-drive” below and come back. We are adding new data, daily.
