GEOFON offers access to seismic waveform and station
metadata using the FDSN web services,
Inventory for all networks archived at GFZ. A current list of networks is available.
In particular, networks which are coordinated as part of EIDA but not archived here are not available by web service.
Their metadata can be accessed using our data portal or by other methods.
fdsnws-dataselect - Real time and archive data for those networks archived at GFZ (not other EIDA data centres).
You can check availability with our
or the WFcatalog service.
A few example URLs for the FDSN web services are given below.
We do not offer an fdsnws-event earthquake parameter service, but you may find our popular eqinfo event catalog helpful.
Returns response-level information as FDSN StationXML for all BH* channels present at all current GEOFON stations. This may be imported directly into SeisComP.
Warning: this is relatively large (> 4MB).
For many temporary networks, the FDSN-assigned network code is shared between multiple networks.
For these you may need to specify a year range to avoid unwanted unrelated stations.
Our list of networks archived at GEOFON includes the start and end year for each network.
