Building on the success of the Virtual Zooarchaeology of the Arctic Project (VZAP), which was created by CVAST Executive Director Herbert Maschner, Matthew Betts of the Canadian Museum of History, and Corey Schou of Idaho State University, we are expanding the collections on a global scale.
Incorporating the VZAP collections, and adding scanned materials from other projects, we are seeking collaborations to create osteological comparative collections around the world. Most recently, we did the first complete scan of the now-extinct Steller Sea Cow in the Muséum national d'histoire naturelle in Paris (MNHN). The database is currently being reconstructed and we expect full functionality in the next few months.
