TimeScale Creator – stratigraphic tables made easy!

Recently I found a nice tool that generates stratigraphic tables (geology) for free. TimeScale Creator is Java-based (works with Win, Linux and MacOS) and allows you to compose individual stratigraphic tables and show off also with your own data.
