Web ServicesThe Seismic Data Portal is supported by several web data services, including services providing event, waveform, and user data cart information. These data services are available through internet web standards, and are publicly available.
The services currently publicly available include:
OGC ServicesWe are proud to announce the availability of preliminary versions of our OGC-compliant services for testing and feedback.
Event InformationThe Event Information Services are available as both SOAP- and REST-style services.
The SOAP services provide information in QuakeML format, whereas the REST-style services provide information in either QuakeML or JSON formats.
The Event Information REST services are available at /servicesDoc/index.html.
The individual operations include:
Waveform ServicesThe Seismolink web service provides information about networks, stations, channels and more in general a complete inventory of the available resources.
It also allows to query a large pool of datacenters for BB waveforms in a transparent way. The service is available in SOAP and REST (using POST) -style and you can find here its wsdl
The Taup web service offers an utility to compute arrival times using a few default velocity models or provided by the user: wsdl
The User Event and Waveform Data cart services support the operation of the data portal.
They are not publicly available at this time.
More information about the services available on our blog.
