The DMC offers several Common Service APIs to help you acquire data and metadata. These include:
Real time Streaming Service
The IRIS DMC Google Map Service generator creates maps based on IRIS DMC metadata holdings. Either a network or single station map can be generated. Each map produced includes a link to the same data as a KML NetworkLink appropriate for Google Earth. Network and station parameters can be specified directly in the URI path.
The FDSN assigns network codes to provide uniqueness to seismological data streams.
