Media are grouped by projects created by users. Projects tend to contain media tied together by a theme. A project might represent the dataset for a single peer-reviewed paper, the results of a collections digitization project, or data for a digital lesson plan.

Projects can be used to share media ownership and access between project members, and projects can also be used to publish assortments of media and specimens for access and discovery by the public. If you want to share media ownership and access with multiple users across multiple projects, consider creating a user team. Projects can be managed by teams, and users with access to that team also gain access to any projects managed by that team.

Display all details of CT data for The axial skeleton of Tiktaalik roseae This project contains 4 CT scans. These materials were described in the paper entitled, "The axial skeleton of Tiktaalik roseae" which was published in PNAS in 2024. µCT scans are of two blocks from of NUFV 108, which contain the post-cranial skeleton. Additional details of scanning methods and anatomical description are included in the associated paper. 3D models from these scans and also the pelvis are downloadable from sketchfab: https://sketchfab.com/tomstewartscience/collections/tiktaalik-axial-skeleton Thomas Stewart 4 2
Display all details of Elapid Snakes Researchers at The South Australian Museum, University of Adelaide and Flinders University are using X-ray micro-CT and regular X-ray to study skeletal morphology of Australian and SE Asian Elapid Snakes, including but not limited to the Hydrophiinae (true sea snakes). || This project is supported by an Australian Research Council (ARC) Future Fellowship to Kate L Sanders (FT130101965), The University of Adelaide Research Fellowship to Emma Sherratt, an ARC Discovery Project grant to Michael SY Lee and Alessandro Palci (DP160103005), and the South Australian Museum Herpetology Collection curated by Mark N Hutchinson. || Data published in: Sherratt, E., K.

Display all details of Fishboneviz Fishboneviz is a 3D fish bone reference collection of Australian and Pacific taxa. The platform is open access and intended to support ongoing ichthyoarchaeological research and teaching efforts in the region. The original fish CT scans were produced as part of the openVertebrate initiative. Image segmentation procedures were implemented to a representative sample of fish bone elements. Fishboneviz is funded by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Australian Biodiversity and Heritage. Ristevski, Jorgo 215 26

Display all details of Swallowers (Chiasmodontidae: Scombriformes: Teleostei) of The Gully Marine Protected Area A large collection of swallowers (Chiasmodontidae), taken in 2007–10 during four midwater-trawl surveys in The Gully, a submarine canyon and Marine Protected Area off the coast of Nova Scotia, was examined in exploration of the contested specific distinction between Chiasmodon niger and C. harteli. Vertebral counts, the principal distinguishing feature proposed, were derived from skeletal images prepared from computed tomography (CT) scans. All specimens available for study proved to be harteli-like in morphology, preventing definitive conclusions on its distinction from C. niger, but knowledge of the species’ characteristics and distribution was advanced. In addition, the chiasmodontid component of the MPA’s biodiversity was established, including the presence of Kali indica – a new record for Canada’s Atlantic waters. Trevor Kenchington 12 12
Display all details of 3D Freshwater Mussels of America This is a library of photogrammetry scans of all American freshwater mussel species. Scanning for this project is funded by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and is a collaboration between the Florida Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, Chesapeake Bay Foundation, and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Freshwater mussels are severely imperiled and yet are poorly understood. One critical challenge for freshwater mussels is limited public attention. Hands-on resources represent a critical tool to improve public engagement, but are currently limited. This library of open-source 3-D models of United States mussel species will expand educational opportunities by providing open access to download 3D models for printed replicas to use for education and training. Printed mussels can be used for training and as education and outreach tools for the general public. For Threatened and Endangered species, which are uncommon and difficult to find or require permitting and paperwork to transport, these printed replicas are available to improve access. The realistic and life-like 3D prints from photogrammetry can provide opportunities for hands-on education that might not otherwise be available. Randall, Zach 342 165
