EPICC Virtual Field Experiences

Fossil sites are just a click away with Eastern Pacific Invertebrate Communities of the Cenozoic ("EPICC") Virtual Field Experiences. Presented by the University of California Museum of Paleontology, the project "provide[s] opportunities to virtually visit classic paleontological field sites along the Pacific coast and to explore images and data from specimens that have been collected there." Users can choose between Central California and Central California Coast. Each choice includes interactive story maps that invite visitors to "explore a field site as a scientist, using photographs, maps, and other visualizations and data to figure out how a place came to be the way it is today." Additionally, the Glossary and Videos pages provide further background information and tools that may be especially useful for those new to paleontology. Finally, the For Educators page has a variety of modules designed for teachers and students (available to download in Word, Google Docs, and PDF formats). The project is funded by the National Science Foundation, and most of the site's content was created by staff at the University of California Museum of Paleontology and the Paleontological Research Institution.
