It’s good! Just gonna say the CE and BCE are too inaccurate.
If you want to know the history of the earth, get this app
I've been looking for an app like this for years! A big thank you to Chris Scotese, the Paleomap project and to the Howard Hughes Institute for sponsoring the app.
It's got (nearly) everything you could want from a map showing the changes that plate tectonics has made to our world: you can spin the globe and pan in on any area you are interested in; locate using present day cities; move backwards or forwards step by step or by letting the clock run. It even has a very sensible scale showing the geological eras against the timeline and an impressive list of catastrophes and events.
It may need a few more health warnings as I'm sure some details will change as our understanding improves, but that's the nature of science.
So, so good for Earth science
This is THE app to accompany study, or general reading, into the origins of life and development of planet Earth. It is marvellous. Reading books on Earth history and the groupings of the plates at key periods etc. is fine, but I couldn't visualise it ... or remember the names of various eras. It's an aid, a superb aid, well done.
