URL Shortcuts

Quick access to IRIS web pages

IRIS staff are working on ways to make it easier to use the website. A short Uniform Resource Locator (URL) is easy to remember, so the new IRIS website uses acronyms or abbreviations in the path.

For example, to go to SeismiQuery the standard URL is http://www.iris.edu/SeismiQuery/index.htm (mixing upper and lowercase letters) but now you can use the shortcut http://www.iris.edu/sq

The IRIS DMC MetaData Aggregator, know as MDA, uses the shortcut http://www.iris.edu/mda

Here are easy to remember URLs to popular IRIS web pages.
