Hi, I would like to translate this script to Python : ftp://hazards.cr.usgs.gov/feregion/fe_1995/feregion.pl This is already a Python implementation (though ObsPy) allowing to query Iris webservice but it can be slow for a bunch of coordinates so I would like to resolve coordinate to region locally. What is the language used for the webservice implementation ? If it's Python, does the code is open ? (To be added to ObsPy) Cheers, Fabien -- Fabien Engels - fabien.engels@unistra.fr Reseau...

Hello WS users, The DMC has made a minor configuration change to our web service servers. We now support HTTP compression, when requested, for the following mime types: text/html text/xml text/plain application/xml HTTP compression is used in transferring data if (1) the client software supports compression and includes 'gzip' in the Accept-Encoding header. (2) the data being sent if of the correct mime-type. A Wikipedia article describing HTTP compression can be found at: http://en.wik... [more]

Greetings. I'm getting questions about requesting restricted data through EMERALD. Do you have an estimate as to when that functionality will be available? Thanks! -- John

To users of the IRIS-WS (Java) library and the irisFetch.m (MATLAB) interface, We have discovered an inconsistent error in how the IRIS-WS Java library interprets the event origin time value returned by our ws-event service. For some queries the value is interpreted as UTC, as it should. For other queries this value is interpreted in the local time zone, which, unless your computer is set to UTC, is incorrect. This library is used by the DMC's irisFetch.m MATLAB interface. We are prepar... [more]

Hi, in http://www.iris.edu/ws/availability/ there is an ambiguity with respect to the correct value for the parameter "output" if bulkdataselect list format is requested. Under "Query Usage:" there is output-options :: [output=<xml|bulk|query>] whereas below in the table it is not "bulk" but "bulkdataselect". Which is correct? The IRIS implementation appears to accept both but IMO in the specification it should either be one of these or it needs to be stated explicitly that both "bulk"... [more]
