The Eurasian Modern Pollen Database (EMPD) contains modern pollen data (raw counts) for the entire Eurasian continent. Derived from the European Modern Pollen Database, the dataset contains many more samples West of the Ural Mountains. We propose this dataset in three different format: 1/ an Excel spreadsheet, 2/ a PostgreSQL dump and 3/ a SQLite3 portable database format. All three datasets are strictly equivalent. For download see "Original Version".
