By downloading any of the files below, you certify that you have read and agree to the conditions outlined in the DISCLAIMER and that you agree to abide by the conditions of the end-user license agreement (EULA). Specifically, the software is to be used 'as is' and without modification, you will not distribute the software to other parties (you should direct them to this website, instead), you will not attempt to reverse engineer or extract any part of the software or accompanying data files, and no results beyond reporting the characterization of a single unknown can be published without the express, written consent of the developers.

Windows users should download the .zip file. All others can download the .jar file, directly.

Different downloads are required because MS Windows (Internet Explorer, anyway) automatically changes the ".jar" extension to ".zip", and since MS Windows hides extensions by default, it is unnecessarily complicated to explain to users what is going on and how to fix it. If anyone knows the best way to address this and achieve a single download choice, please contact the author.

Version 2018-07-1 includes new East (Kenya and Tanzania n=32) and West African samples (n=110 includes samples from Benin, Cameroon, Ghana, Liberia, and Togo) , Nigeria was left as a separate group as they were observed to be significantly different from the other West African (n=30), Syrian (n= 43), and Colombian (n=71) and were also not included with South America as they have yet to be analyzed.

Version 2014-11-1 includes 1077 new individuals in the reference database. Our new reference database includes many new Europeans samples (contributed by Petra Urbanova), Brazilian (contributed by Petra Urbanova) and Mexican (contributed by Kate Spradley and Bruce Anderson) samples.

For analyses for the new version all versions

  • We have recently found that there is much inter-observer error for the following landmarks and thus suggest to exclude them completely from the analysis: (R/L) mastoidale, (R/L) ectomalare, (R) upper and lower orbits, and prosthion. You may also want to omit (R/L) nasomaxillary suture pinch. Omitting these landmarks also increases the sample sizes utilized for analysis.

For analyses containing European and Brazilian samples

  • To increase sample reference sizes for the European and Brazilian populations, exclude the following landmarks from the analysis.
    • (R/L) ectoconchion, (R/L) lower and upper orbits, opisthion, subspinale, and (R/L) nasomaxillary suture pinch.

For analyses containing Mesoamerican samples

  • To increase sample reference sizes for Mexican and Guatemalan data exclude the following landmarks from the analysis.
  • (R/L) ectomalare, (R) lower and upper orbits, (R/L) frontomalare temporale, (R/L) mastoidale, (R/L) subspinale, (R/L) zygomaxillare, (R/L) zygoorbitale
