JWEED is the Java version of our popular event-related request tool WEED. JWEED is a Java program which can run on any platform that supports Java, including Mac, Linux, Windows, Oracle Solaris, etc.


Using JWEED, a person can obtain station and earthquake information as well as download and plot timeseries data.

You can obtain data using JWEED using just a few steps:

  • Select some stations and/or select some events
  • Specify arrival times for each station or use a static time window
  • Download and view the data, then save files to disk

JWEED is designed to run on platforms running Oracle’s Java SE 7 or later. This software has been tested on Mac OS X 10.9, Windows 7, Ubuntu Linux 11-64, and CentOS 5-32. The software has been tested on VMWare virtual machine instances for some of these OS’s.

Minimum platform requirements:

  • Windows: Vista / Windows Server 2008
