A part of my responsibilities with the NeotomaDB.org project is the creation of educational materials. This fly will be a part of an animation that will show how insect remains are used as a part of the archaeological record.
I am building the mesh model of the fly to exacting scientific standards using the open-sourced animation software, Blender. Funding is provided by the National Science Foundation and the World Universities Network. Other aspects of the work are in collaboration with the Center for Environmental Informatics at Penn State.
