As part of an NSF-funded revitalization project, we are geocoding and databasing our fossil localities. Sites whose geocoding is complete are shown in this interactive map. Blue paddles show formation-level data by region, dark red paddles show location of geocoded IU localities, and the olive paddles show location of geocoded localities that use the older numbering system developed by E.R. Cumings.
