Imaging technologies allow us to examine fossils in new and exciting ways. The Vertebrate Paleontology department houses an extraordinary collection of animals from the Devonian Period. Over the course of the project, the intern will photograph and 3D scan the department’s collection of micro-arthrodire jaws, then publish them online. Arthrodires are a group of armored fish that lived 360 million years ago, and the collection of micro-arthrodire jaws represents an exciting opportunity to learn more about these small animals that have not been well studied. The intern will learn how to use a structured light scanner, how to create digital models from raw scan data, photography workflows, the anatomy of arthrodires, digital archival storage methods, and metadata.
