I've just discovered a new program called Prezi, which unlike MS Powerpoint allows you to create one image full of pictures and text which you can then navigate around, zoom in and out, in any order you want! For presentations, you can set a designated path which will take you to each part of the image or text in the order you want. I'm going to start using it to map out the Isisford fossil localities, with each locality containing information about the fossils found there, and each fossil containing a description of taphonomic features etc... It should be a great visual/graphical tool for record keeping!
About the author
Dr Caitlin Syme is a palaeontologist who recently finished her PhD at The University of Queensland, studying the taphonomy (preservation state) of fossil non-avian dinosaurs, crocodiles and fish from the Winton Formation, Queensland, Australia. Think forensic science or CSI for fossils, and you're on the right track!
