Hi My understanding is that magnitudes are connected to origins (at least in the iris database). But from the returned xml, there is no obvious connection except maybe by the ordering of the elements. Looking at the quakeml documentation, it looks like a magnitude can have an "originID" element. Could that be populated, when known, so that the magnitude to origin connection is explicit? thanks, Philip

Hi This url returns 2 copies of the PDE-M origin. Is this a bug or is it because the PDE-M origin is in both the PDE and ISC catalogs? http://www.iris.edu/ws/event/query?minmag=5&starttime=2000-06-08T12%3A21%3A00&endtime=2000-06-08T12%3A22%3A00&includeallmagnitudes=yes&orderby=time&preferredonly=no thanks Philip

Hi A couple of questions about the event web service. 1) What is the intended meaning of "includeallmagnitudes"? I appears to me that it means include zero or one magnitude, but never includes more than that. For example this query finds one origin and one magnitude: http://www.iris.edu/ws/event/query?minmag=5&starttime=2000-06-08T12%3A10%3A00&endtime=2000-06-08T13%3A00%3A00&includeallmagnitudes=yes&orderby=time The same query except dropping the includeallmagnitudes gives one origin with...

Hi All, Does anyone know a way of requesting decimated broadband data, for example BHZ data decimated to 4sps? I have tried using the ws-timeseries url query by adding the "deci=4" option, but this only seems to retrieve data from a select few stations. Any help would be much appreciated!

Hi. Is there a way to return a list of all virtual networks from ws_virtualnetwork? I tried it with code=* and got an XML error. Thanks! -- John

Hi. FYI: on http://www.iris.edu/ws/resp/, the URL builder link is broken. It takes me to http://www.iris.edu/ws/resp/URLBASE/builder/resp/, which does not exist. When I do go to the builder at http://www.iris.edu/ws/builder/resp/, it builds for wsbeta instead of ws. Thought you'd want to know... -- John
