This CD-based interactive atlas includes over 75 key fossils that are important for a clear understanding of human evolution. The QuickTime Virtual Reality (QTVR) "object" movie format for each fossil will enable you to have a near-authentic experience of working with these important finds by allowing you to rotate the fossil 360 degrees. Unlike some virtual-reality media, QTVR objects are made using actual photographs of the real objects and thus better preserves details of color and texture. The fossils used include high-quality research casts and real fossils. The CD-ROM offers an inviting, authentic learning environment and contains a dynamic quizzing feature that will allow you to test your knowledge of fossil and species identification, as well as provide more detailed information about the fossil record.
