Since establishing a process for creating image templates and one approach to computerised recording of graphical data using a series of layers I have been adding to the basic resource of bone images when I’ve needed a particular template or when suitable material has become available.
Also, from time to time I have been contacted by zooarchaeologists and students exploring the usefulness of the template images to their own work.
 
Although limited, there is now a suite of useful images of various skeletal elements (see list below) which I believe others may find useful as a general access zooarchaeological resource. I also believe that if users of the resource in some way contribute, the list of available images and templates could be extended much further.
 
Should anyone be interested in obtaining a copy of available images and templates please contact me via the list or at the email [log in to unmask]
 
Initially I intend to provide two sets of files, one of basic “jpg” images and one of my template files which are in Paint Shop Pro file format; each PSP file comprises the layers: basic image, black and white image, line, scale, labels and blank for data recording.
However I may be able to convert and add other formats if specifically required.
 
As of now the following is a list of available templates and images:
There are also a number of other image templates that are currently at various stages of completion so this list will be extended further.
 
Cow (Bos)
Femur (Left), (Right). Humerus (Left), (Right). Innominate (Left), (Right). Metacarpal (Left), (Right). Radius & Ulna (Left), (Right).
 
Goat (Capra)
Femur (Left), (Right). Humerus (Left), (Right). Innominate (Left), (Right). Radius & Ulna (Left), (Right). Scapula (Left), (Right). Tibia (Left), (Right).

 Subject: Re: [ZOOARCH] recording butchery
 

David Orton's work is just super; how totally convenient if everybody
would "image" their data similarly. If we lived in a more right-brained
world, this might be the basis for quantitative statistical
analysis....but I digress. My problem is much simpler: no image-processing
program that I own (i.e. Photoshop, full version) will open files with
extensions like ".dbf" or ".dp" or whatever they are. Is there some way to
open, or else convert, Orton's files as given to something standard like
.gif, .tif, or .jpg? Thanks -- Deb Bennett
