Abstract: This report describes equipment for digitisation of video camera images, and the use of computer programs for retouching and arranging digital images of fossils into composite plates for publication. The capture of digital output from the scanning electron microscope, and hard copy scanner is described. Other applications outlined include derivation of fossil outline coordinates for use in Fourier shape analysis, and the use of digital images in a computer-based fossil identification key. (auth)
