Revitalization of the IU Paleontology Collection funded by the US National Science Foundation (DBI-0846697) under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009


The IU Paleontology Collection is a resource for paleontological research at Indiana University and the scientific community. Its 1.3 million specimens document past research projects and serve as a resource for new synthetic research on stratigraphy, paleoecology, evolution, and the biotic effects of climate change.


Our localities

As part of an NSF-funded revitalization project, we are geocoding and databasing our fossil localities. Sites whose geocoding is complete are shown in this interactive map. Blue paddles show formation-level data by region, dark red paddles show location of geocoded IU localities, and the olive paddles show location of geocoded localities that use the older numbering system developed by E.R. Cumings.
