No Bull, Just Pig

Maybe not the most flattering of photos, but the Virtual Pig Dissection website will help students around the world with their studies in biology.

My most recent project has been the construction of a website that allows students to virtually explore the dissection process of a pig fetus without actually having to get messy. The original website was constructed with Adobe Shockwave, which has since become partially obsolete (and was fairly processor intensive to start with). To make things easier for all users, I converted the Shockwave site into plain HTML.
The Virtual Pig Dissection (or VPD) is used by students who are uncomfortable with touching the real animal, are prohibited from doing so by their religion, or whose schools simply can’t afford to do the real exercise.
