view from the top


Over the weekend, I put together a faux-panorama of the top of Deposit 1. Standing in the northwestern corner of the deposit, I did my very best David Hockney impression and photographed everything I could see from there, and then overlaid the images in Photoshop. Though its not nearly as helpful as a wide-angle photograph would have been, I think this still gives a good idea of what the overall deposit looks like. The fossiliferous grids are (so far) all in the eastern portion of the box; most other grids are sterile (no fossils). If you click on the image above, you'll be taken to our page on flickr.com (where we store all the photos featured on this blog, as well as many others), where you can mouse-over different parts of the photo to read descriptive notes.

Just like my concept art: looks a bit crude and rough but it illustrates your point. I recommend photoshop for that type of thing.
