IRIS DMC Google Map Service


The Google Map generator creates maps based on IRIS DMC metadata holdings

Either a network or single station map can be generated

Each map produced includes a link to the same data as a KML NetworkLink appropriate for Google Earth

Network and station parameters can be specified directly in the URI path:

http://ds.iris.edu/gmap/[network]/[station]

Recognized parameters:

sidebar=0 - Turn off station list sidebar, default is on
networkcolors=0 - Turn off unique colors for each network, default is on
gelink=0 - Turn off link to Google Earth NetworkLink, default is on
lean=1 - Turn on lean mode to create a smaller banner/header, default is off
kiosk=1 - Turn on kiosk mode to disable external links, default is off

realtime=(on | off) - (Show only | Show no) stations with realtime data, default show all
archive=(on | off) - (Show only | Show no) stations with archive data, default show all

Note that realtime and archive parameters are 'ANDed' if both are specified such that:

If both realtime and archive are 'on', only stations with both realtime and archive data will be shown.
If realtime is 'on' and archive is 'off', only stations with realtime but no archive data will be shown.
If realtime is 'off' and archive is 'on', only stations with archive but no realtime data will be shown.
If both realtime and archive are 'off', only stations with neither realtime nor archive data will be shown.

net="network" - Specify SEED network code
sta="station" - Specify SEED station code
loc="location" - Specify SEED location code mask, not included in output
chan="channel" - Specify SEED channel code mask, not included in output
minlat="degrees" - Specify minimum latitude, northern boundary [-90 <= X <= 90]
maxlat="degrees" - Specify maximum latitude, southern boundary [-90 <= X <= 90]
minlon="degrees" - Specify minimum longitude, western boundary [-180 <= X <= 180]
maxlon="degrees" - Specify maximum longitude, eastern boundary [-180 <= X <= 180]
startbefore=YYYY[/MM[/DD]] - Specify stations starting before this date
startafter=YYYY[/MM[/DD]] - Specify stations starting after this date
endbefore=YYYY[/MM[/DD]] - Specify stations ending before this date
endafter=YYYY[/MM[/DD]] - Specify stations ending after this date
databefore=YYYY[/MM[/DD]] - Limit to stations with data before this date
dataafter=YYYY[/MM[/DD]] - Limit to stations with data after this date

timewindow=YYYY[/MM[/DD]]-YYYY[/MM[/DD]] - Specify a time range that stations must be operating within

If the end date is omitted is is assumed to be the same as the start time, for example timewindow=1999/1/1 would be intepreted as (1999/1/1-1999/1/1) i.e. operating on that specific day

If the month and/or day is omitted from the time window start date the earliest month and/or day will be assumed, for example a start date of 2000 will be interpreted as 2000/01/01

If the month and/or day is omitted from the time window end date the latest month and/or day will be assumed, for example an end date of 2000 will be interpreted as 2000/12/31

External data:

xmlref=URL - Specify URL of XML data to use, must be in the same format as returned by http://ds.iris.edu/cgi-bin/xmlstationinfo

Examples:

Basic example to list the IRIS/IDA network:
http://ds.iris.edu/gmap/?net=II
or equivalently:
http://ds.iris.edu/gmap/II

Another example that will list just IU station COLA:
http://ds.iris.edu/gmap/IU/COLA

Example for _GSN virtual network list:
http://ds.iris.edu/gmap/_GSN

Example for _GSN virtual network listing only stations coming into the DMC in realtime:
http://ds.iris.edu/gmap/_GSN?realtime=on

Example for _GSN virtual network listing only stations not coming into the DMC in realtime:
http://ds.iris.edu/gmap/_GSN?realtime=off

Example for _US-ALL virtual network listing only stations without archived data:
http://ds.iris.edu/gmap/_US-ALL?archive=off

Example for TA network list for stations operating in the 2nd half of 2004:
http://ds.iris.edu/gmap/TA?timewindow=2004/6/1-2004/12/31

Example for _GSN virtual network list for stations operating in 1998:
http://ds.iris.edu/gmap/_GSN?timewindow=1988-1988

Example for selecting stations in an area [Washington State, USA] without selecting a network:
http://ds.iris.edu/gmap/?minlat=46&maxlat=49&minlon=-125&maxlon=-117

Example for _US-ALL virtual network for all stations which have no realtime or archived data at the IRIS DMC:
http://ds.iris.edu/gmap/_US-ALL?realtime=off&archive=off
