Abstract

Informatic inventory of the localities with Rhinocerotidae of the European Neogene and Quaternary
The file of Tertiary and Quaternary age fields with mammals was created within our lab, by a researcher at the beginning of the 1960s. This file contained a series of geographic descriptors (site, locality, department, region, country, location) and geological (age of the deposit), typological for prehistoric material (tools, furniture art…), zoological (mention of the fauna) and botanical (mention of plant species). These descriptors were associated with bibliographic lists on palaeontology, prehistory and palaeobotany. In the following decades, this file has been highly enriched and has become too important to allow a manual access. We decided to computerize all data to facilitate the consultation and querying of this file. This work was carried out with the FileMaker Pro software and developed a plug input on which appear the same descriptors as those of the plug hardback, associated with many lists of values that accelerate the computerization of the data. This computerized file provides valuable assistance to basic research in palaeontology and allows ensuring, through its broadcast, a significant protection of palaeontological sites.
