OESIS: the Oxford Earth Sciences Image Store
The Image Store is a work in progress, consisting of geological images provided or newly acquired by staff of the Dept of Earth Sciences. The ultimate intention is to provide a database-driven stock of royalty-free medium-resolution images (for assignments or PowerPoint presentations) for academic use among lecturers, teachers and students. The database would have two front-ends, for universities and for schools, with appropriate metadata for each purpose.
Currently, images are publicly available in static web pages at http://www.earth.ox.ac.uk/~oesis/. These include collections of general interest ...
- Rocks of NW Scotland, a virtual field trip
- Rocks in the field
- Rocks in hand specimen
- Rocks under the microscope
