-The Neotoma website will be the main access portal for the majority of users of Neotoma. The website is still under development,​ and should be available by the IPC meeting in Bonn. At present, users may select sites by choosing the type of data, the geographical region and/or the time window of interest. The choice is made using a shopping basket approach, which allows the selection of one or many sites.
