Generating programs and/or databases to facilitate the understanding and curation of vertebrate morphologic, phylogenetic and taxonomic data are ongoing. FossilScope is a freeware program in development to compile and make available the fossil evidence and digital manipulations that underpin vertebrate skeletal and skeletal-muscle restorations. CharcaterSearch and TaxonSearch, similarly, compile and make accessible character data in phylogenetic analyses and historical and current taxonomic definitions, respectively, using archosaurian reptiles as prototypes.
