IRIS DMC offers many value added services for network operators contributing data to the IRIS DMC. For instance, as real time data are received, a variety of algorithms are applied to the data that serve as indicators of data quality. A network operator can reference this database of quality estimates as part of monitoring their network performance. network operators such as members of the SW Pacific Tsunami Task Group, depicted in this figure, are considering sending their data to the IRIS DMC for quality assurance, data archiving, data distribution to other task group members, distribution to the international community, and for long term data management. Other international efforts in Central Asia as well as in Africa and the Middle East are also considering this model of data exchange.
