Atlas Der Krystallformen DVD by mindat.org
December 03, 2011 04:28PM
This is a wonderful resource - lighter weight and smaller size than the paper edition, and much more available. It is very well set up and perhaps the best disk with mineral information, that I have ever seen.

I have 2 questions:
1. Is it okay by you for me to download the disk onto own home computer (only for uses as permitted in the "Read Me" note). These new computers have so much storage space (if so, I would have to make a separate folder, what should be its name). If so, this would be downloaded only on own computer (others can buy their own copies from mindat.org). What is your policy regarding this possibility?
2. If I use a diagram in an article, I would want to properly attribute and credit the source (referring to Goldschmidt's Atlas, via DVD by mindat.org, or something like that?. What is the best way to do this (perhaps an example might help?).

Answer - Reference to "General" then under posting "Goldschmidt on CD" last posting (as of now) was on Jan. 12, 2013.

(this is best cross-reference I could come up with - I welcome substitution of better one and would follow such as a model next time).

I got the Atlas about 5 years ago and have used it very little. I was disappointed with the quality of the images but lately am beginning to wonder if it's not some peculiarity of my system (currently Mac OS 10.8, latest Adobe reader). I tried adjusting the contrast and brightness but that didn't help. I'll attach a typical photo. Has anyone else had such concerns?
