Volume 3 : No 2 : June 2001


The new version of our very popular waveform browsing and request tool is finally ready to be tested in prime-time! Until we get all of the event products built (see our last WILBER II article for details), we will be offering users the choice of using the original WILBER or the new WILBER II interface. If you would like a few pointers about using WILBERII, view the new help pages.

Features comparison between WILBER versions

  • GSN station data only
  • Event products is made up of static files
  • Uses HTML frames format
  • Limited output options
  • More accurate global map for event selection
  • Select events distant from a point
