Free Geologic Time Scale Creator

TimeScale Creator
by Katelyn Verner and Rebecca Bobick,Purdue University

https://engineering.purdue.edu/Stratigraphy/tscreator/index/index.php

According to the web page:

“TimeScale Creator, a free JAVA package, enables
you to explore and create charts of any portion of
the geologic time scale from an extensive suite of
global and regional events in Earth History. The
internal database suite encompasses over 20,000
biologic, geomagnetic, sea-level, stable isotope,
and other events – details are given on the
BUILT-IN DATA page. All ages in TSCreator
version 5.4 are currently standardized to Geologic
Time Scale 2004, and to the Concise Geologic
Time Scale, 2008 compilation. The age model
for TSCreator version 6.3 is from "The Geologic
Time Scale 2012" by F.M. Gradstein, J.G. Ogg,
M.D. Schmitz and G.M. Ogg (Elsevier, 2012).”

Webinars about the TimeScale Creator and other
uses of computers in paleontology and geology
can bed found in "C4P Webinars" at
