IDA recently redesigned the project’s website to be more informative and responsive to user’s needs. The site is divided into the following sections:
- About IDA contains a description of the project’s purpose, history and relation to the Green’s who have provided substantial financial support throughout the 26 years of Project IDA’s existence.
- IDA Network contains a network map, alphabetical list of station links, and a description of the Data Collection Center’s work.
- Stations provides direct access to the station list. Through the links on these pages, users gain access to a physical inventory of what equipment is at a site, schematics of the station layout, photographs, contact information, and a list of what data has been processed by the IDA DCC.
- Telemetry contains a description of the means IDA uses to telemeter data from GSN stations back to the user community as well as links to a map of telemetry topology and more detailed descriptions of the NRTS software and the AutoDRM.
- What’s New currently has descriptions of stations under development, new hardware, and topics of immediate interest such as a description of the filtering problem discovered on the IDA MK7 data logger.
- Reports contains links to equipment technical reports as well as to quarterly reports of the past five years.
- Contact Information lists whom to contact for more information.
We are quite excited about this site and hope users will take the opportunity to explore the extensive information available.
