Notable Features of the Bone Clones® Fossil Hominid Rotational Series

2-axis Rotation The user can rotate the skulls to the left or right, up or down, providing a complete virtual cast to the viewer. The user may also set the entire rotation process in motion with a single stroke and sit back to observe the skull from numerous angles. 
Zoom View The user can increase skull size and see all detail in high resolution.
Auto-rotation Auto-rotation sets the entire rotation process in motion on both X and Y axes, animating 71 high-resolution photographs.
Information panel This provides a description of the physical characteristics of skull and the significance of the discovery to evolutionary theory, as well as where and when the find occurred.
More in the Series An overview of entire series, including a still photo and information for each skull, all of which are chronologically ordered from top to bottom along the side of the page.
Scale Reference This overlay feature allows the user to compare and contrast the size and anatomical relationships of features (eye sockets, brain case, browridges, nasal opening, cheekbones, etc.) of the hominid and modern skulls.
Map A custom map element shows geographic location of discovery.
