Human Origins Locality Data Collective Mission
The data associated with the human fossil record has sprawled over the last 150 years, and the vast array of knowledge available is largely clouded by obscure publications and popular oversimplification. Many researchers have databases of fossils and localities, but these invariably grow unwieldy and impossibly time-consuming to maintain. The Human Origins Locality Data Collective combines datasets of paleoanthropology researchers globally and freely. It has a star-based rating system that allows collaborators to rate the entries of other users.
The data structure and connection information can be found under settings and administration. It is licensed so that anyone may freely use the data non-commercially as long as they attribute the Human Origins Locality Data Collective.
