Every ... This dataset contains all the digital files created and used for reconstructing the musculoskeletal system of the tail of the Late Jurassic sauropod from Tanzania (Africa) Giraffatitan brancai. Every folder includes essential (for verification) and recommended (as best practice) files, as proposed by Davies et al. Open data and digital morphology. Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences 2017; 284: 20170194. A metadata text file is included within the recommended files, in which the content of the folder is detailed, besides the methodology, material and software used. A more detailed description of the files and the methodology used is published in Díez Díaz, V, Demuth, O.E., Schwarz, D., Mallison, H. The tail of the Late Jurassic sauropod Giraffatitan brancai: digital reconstruction of its epaxial and hypaxial musculature and implications for tail biomechanics.
