Abstract

Eleven georeferenced sites of paleontological interest, representative of the Upper Miocene of Seville (Central Guadalquivir Basin, Spain), have been selected and their scientific, educational, and touristic cultural values assessed, ranging between 410 and 770. Most of them are very rich in benthic macroforaminifers, molluscs, large echinoids, ichnofossils, cetaceans, and sharks. Sites 5 and 7 also contain the stratotype of the Andalusian stage proposed in the ‘70s. Using geomatic tools, they can be viewed in free virtual globes, including virtual flight, containing diagrams, photographs, and informative sheets.
