Software Metadata – Tags – seed

Number of software packages tagged with seed.

Evaluate response information and output to ASCII files using rdseed v4.16 and above RESP files.


This is a SeedLink plugin that collects data from an Earthworm export_? process. Usually the export_scn program is run on a host with access to the appropriate data; export_scn is a version of export_generic that will only transfer waveform data. While ewexport_plugin will accept any Earthworm messages only waveform data will be processed. Only waveform data in TRACEBUF packets will be processed, the plugin does not support the newer TRACEBUF2 packets.


JEvalResp is a Java utility for evaluating and processing instrument response descriptions. It can make use of instrument responses available as RESP text files and through IRIS/FDSN Web Services .


JPlotResp is a Java utility for evaluating and processing instrument response descriptions. It can make use of instrument responses available as RESP text files and through IRIS/FDSN Web Services .


A C library framework for manipulating and managing SEED data records. The library is known to work in most Unix/Linux environments (including Mac OSX) and in Win32 systems.


A SeedLink client library written in C.


Converts Mini-SEED to SAC format. An optional metadata file may be supplied that contains values for the SAC headers that are not available in Mini-SEED. This converter should work in Linux/Unix/MacOSX and Windows.


Known Issues: rdseed 5.3.1 is the current release and has four primary issues that IRIS DMC staff are looking into.

  1. compatibility issues with summary files produced by JWEED 4.1 (Linux)
  2. segmentation faulting when attempting to produce SAC files with user-compiled code coupled with a JWEED summary file
  3. user difficulty building rdseed from source using the latest gcc (Linux, Mac)
  4. gain of CSS output for infrasound channels off by 10^9

IRIS currently has limited resources to support rdseed and response time regarding rdseed issues may be longer than normal. Nonetheless, we are endeavoring to put out new releases to address these reported problems. Thank you for your patience.

rdseed is IRIS DMC`s legacy utility for reading SEED volumes, the FDSN-approved file format for representing and distributing digital seismic data. This utility allows the user to read the contents of the SEED file and convert it to many different output formats, extracting the data, station information, or instrument responses from the file.


SeedCodec is a collection of compression and decompression routines for standard seismic data formats in Java. The goal is to support all the formats available within seed, but submissions from the broader community are needed to accomplish this.

slink2ew is a SeedLink client module for Earthworm.


A SeedLink to Antelope ORB module.

slink2orb connects to a SeedLink server, requests data and forwards it to an ORB ring buffer as packet type ‘SEED’. All SeedLink data packets are 512-byte Mini-SEED records.


slinktool, the all-in-one SeedLink client for data stream inspection, data collection and server testing.
