AutoDRM data formats provide a common format for data and data product exchange. The data formats all contain ASCII options that allow the exchange of information via email (even for waveforms). Waveforms in binary format may also be sent using the AutoDRM message format, but the transmission of data messages with binary information must be via FTP.


Batch access to the IRIS DMC archive can be obtained by electronically mailing a specially formatted file to the IRIS DMC in Seattle. These are BREQ_FAST files and provide a base level access to the DMC needed by any user.


evalresp can be used to calculate either the complex spectral response or the frequency-amplitude-phase response for a specified station or set of stations, channel or channels, and network, for a specified date, time and frequency, using the SEED ASCII response (RESP) files produced by the program rdseed as input.


Earthworm export server (TCP/IP)


Google Earth combines the power of Google Search with satellite imagery, maps, terrain and 3D buildings to put the world’s geographic information at your fingertips. Using the IRIS Google Map Service, you can create custom maps based on IRIS DMC metadata.


A MATLAB® interface to the IRIS archive


Access station, event, and time series (waveform) data from IRIS using the Java Web Service Library.


A Java port of our classic rdseed application.


JWEED is a Java client that is compatible with the web services offered at IRIS DMC and data centers supporting the FDSN Web Services protocol. JWEED has been tested on recent Mac, Linux, and Windows operating systems and should run fine with Oracle’s Java 6 or later.


Provide all needed functionality for communicating with a SeedLink server in a generalized way.


The MetaData Aggregator (MDA) returns metadata summaries from the IRIS DMC database including data availability and links to further services.


Convert miniSEED data to SAC format.


NetDC is a data request system that allows a user to request seismological information from multiple data centers through a single email form. Information is delivered to the user through email and FTP in a uniform digital or text format.


Detailed technical manual for the Networked Data Centers (NetDC) protocol.


This is a SeedLink plugin to grab data from an Antelope ORB.


The Portable Data Collection Centers (PDCC) software has reached its third iteration of release. The mission of the PDCC project has been to provide network operators a portable software facility for managing seismic network data and metadata. It is also intended to provide a suite of tools for producing SEED volumes for data distribution as well as provide support for other data formats.

PQLX (PASSCAL Quick Look eXtended) is open-source software authored by Richard Boaz (Boaz Consultancy ) for evaluating seismic station performance and data quality. The software primarily consists of a server and client but also includes data extraction and migration tools. Given waveform data and instrument response files, PQLX server calculates trace statistics, Power Spectral Densities (PSD), and Probability Density Functions (PDF) and writes the results to a MySQL database for quick access.


rdseed reads and interprets Standard for Exchange of Earthquake Data (SEED) files. This is the format defined by the Federation of Digital Seismographic Networks (FDSN) to represent seismic data.


SAC (Seismic Analysis Code), previously SAC2000, is a general-purpose interactive program designed for the study of sequential signals, especially time-series data. Emphasis has been placed on analysis tools used by research seismologists in the detailed study of seismic events.


Connect to a SeedLink server, requests data streams and writes received packets into directory/file structures.


Transfer data from SeedLink to EarthWorm protocol.


Transfer data from SeedLink to an Antelope ORB protocol.


SeedLink client for data stream inspection, data collection and server testing.


SOD is a program that automates tedious data selection, downloading, and routine processing tasks in seismology.


The TauP Toolkit is a seismic travel time calculator. In addition to travel times, it can calculate derivative information such as ray paths through the earth, pierce and turning points.


VASE is a Java-based client application designed for viewing and extracting seismic waveforms from the DHI waveform repositories.

WEED is an X-windows program which presents the user with an easy-to-use interface for selecting events and stations and then computes travel times from events to stations.
