Is there any open data concerning dinosaur discoveries? I am particularly interested in plotting them on a map, and showing date when clicked/showing all discoveries of a certain type/in a certain time period, from a certain era, etc

The Paleobiology Database is a Creative Commons database that seeks to "provide global, collection-based occurrence and taxonomic data for organisms of all geological ages." The data can be downloaded in CSV/JSON/RIS, viewed interactively with the PBDB Navigator, and accessed programmatically via the API of the PBDB Data Service
