Thread: Regional network reviewed event catalogs as a web-service?

Are there any plans for building an IRIS web-service for providing *reviewed* regional network event catalogs?

(I would rather not use the current SeismiQuery system in place - http://www.iris.edu/SeismiQuery/sq-events.htm)

I am trying to efficiently collect all the regional event catalogs and do a comparison with the USArray catalog. Seeing as IRIS already has the data in one format, is it not trivial to put a web-services wrapper around the catalog data and allow it to be query-able via URLs?

Thanks in advance,
- Rob Newman

  • Hi Rob,

    Our ws-event (www.iris.edu/ws/event) service returns all of the event catalogs we have at IRIS, everything that is available via SeismiQuery should be available via ws-event. I do not believe there are any automated solutions included by any of the contributors, so in that sense all of them are reviewed. There are no plans to ingest more regional network catalogs into our system, most of what we have is global or national in scope and then the ANF solutions that may contain lower magnitude events for regions in the conterminous US.

    • Thanks Chad - I must have overlooked the event service. From the docs (http://www.iris.edu/ws/event/catalogs) I see the data holdings are USGS NEIC, ISC, Global CMT and USArray ANF. Are there data from any regional networks in there, such as Berkeley, CalTech, UN Reno, etc, that are not exposed to the service?

      Regards,
      - Rob

      • Hi Rob,

        We don't receive any event catalog data from ANSS or other regional networks directly, the only solutions we have from those networks come included in the ANF catalog and in some cases in the NEIC PDE catalog.

        The ANSS composite catalog hosted by NCEDC might be worth a look (http://www.ncedc.org/anss/), I'm not sure what services are available to search the catalog.

        godo luck,
        Chad
