SiteSeer is software for visualizing, in summary form, the contents of a Pollen Database. SiteSeer runs under any version of Microsoft Windows. SiteSeer includes a map and a datafile for each of the databases represented. These currently include: African Pollen Database, Eastern Siberia and Russian Far East Pollen Database, European Pollen Database, Indo-Pacific Pollen Database (inventory-only), Latin American Pollen Database, and the North American Pollen Database.

With SiteSeer you can zoom the map and select individual sites. For each site, SiteSeer displays displays summary information (site name, investigator, latitude, longitude, altitude, and the number of samples, variables, and radiocarbon dates); the publications associated with the site; a summary pollen diagram (except in the case of inventory-only databases, where the data are not yet available). SiteSeer also allows you to search for sites by name or by investigator, or to filter the sites displayed by type (core, section, surface sample), age range, pollen-type, or investigator.
