So I just stumbled onto this "almost web service" that lists the earliest
and latest times for each catalog/contributor:
http://www.iris.edu/SeismiQuery/bin/event-inventory.pl

This would be really useful for SOD to decide with time ranges should use
which catalogs/contributors. Any chance you all are thinking of "web
servicing" this functionality? It could be screen-scrapped, but a text or
xml format would be easier to parse.

thanks
Philip

    Hi Philip,

    Hmm, not a bad idea. We will look into how hard that will be and file a feature request for future consideration. The catalog and contributor listings supported by the FDSN spec. do not include this information so it would be an extension on that.
