The goal of the Digital Atlas of Ancient Life project is to provide a free resource to help individuals identify and better understand fossil species from particular regions and time intervals. In this respect, each Digital Atlas is akin to the types of field guides that naturalists might use to identify bird or plant species. The Digital Atlas project include field guides to fossils (including a mobile app), an online paleontology textbook, and a collection of over 500 virtual 3D models of fossil specimens.The Digital Atlas of Ancient Life project is managed by the Paleontological Research Institution, Ithaca, New York and is supported by the National Science Foundation.
