Earth paleogeographic timelapse 3D Model
What the Earth was like
Timelapse made using 11 paleogeography maps from Prof. Ron Blakey (NAU Geology).
Paleogeographic maps portray immense amounts of data in a single view. When used in time sequence, they show trend and pattern through geologic time.
Here, the timelapse depicts Earth geological evolution from the Early Jurassic until current epoch:
- Early Jurassic (-200 Ma)
- Middle Jurassic (-170 Ma)
- Late Jurassic (-150 Ma)
- Early Cretaceous (-120 Ma) [See the Sketchfab model]
- Middle Cretaceous (-105 Ma)
- Upper Cretaceous (-90 Ma, Turonian)
- Cretaceous - Tertiary boundary (-65 Ma, Maastrichtian/Danian)
- Eocene (-50 Ma)
- Oligocene (-35 Ma)
- Miocene (-20 Ma)
- Holocene (Present)
Model prepared following the steps described on Sketchfab’s Help Center.
