This repository contains 3D surface data used in my dissertation on the evolution of the primate skull.

1. specimen_metadata.csv contains information about the original specimens, including taxonomic information, sex, and museum ID numbers.

2. 3d_surfaces.zip contains the 3D surface files in PLY format.

See the GitHub repository for my dissertation for access to R code and other data from my dissertation, including landmark coordinates derived from the PLY files, primate trait data, and a primate phylogeny: https://github.com/rgriff23/Dissertation
