The following SEED Response Evaluation Tools packages are available for download. Click the package name to access the download page.

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.


JEvalResp is a Java version of the ‘evalresp’ program and, like the original, it is designed to evaluate the response information from ASCII “RESP” files generated by rdseed (V4.16 and above). JEvalResp is also capable of fetching and processing responses from web-services servers. The program searches for one or more responses that match a user-specified station (or set of stations), channel (or set of channels), network and date/time value. The output of the responses is then calculated for a user-specified set of frequencies, resulting in a list of amplitude/phase or complex-spectra values (written to output files).


JPlotResp is a graphically-oriented Java program for processing and plotting the response information from ASCIIRESP” files generated by rdseed (V4.16 and above) or station.xml formatted files. JPlotResp is also capable of fetching and processing responses from web-services servers. The program searches for one or more responses that match a user-specified station (or set of stations), channel (or set of channels), network and date/time value. The output of the responses is then calculated for a user-specified set of frequencies, resulting in a list of amplitude/phase values that may be written to files or plotted. Lists of complex-spectra values may also be written to output files.
