arrow Acces to continuous validated data using Python and Obspy Library


ObsPy :: A Python Toolbox for seismological data processing : http://obspy.org/
ObsPy is an open-source project dedicated to provide a Python framework for processing seismological data. It provides parsers for common file formats and seismological signal processing routines which allow the manipulation of seismological time series


arrow Acces to continuous validated data with the Arclink protocol

NOTE: even if GEOSCOPE data is still available through arclink protocol, please use  FDSN webservices instead.

Arclink is a protocol used for seismological data exchange. The data requests are made by time windows. Allowed request types are currently WAVEFORM, RESPONSE, INVENTORY, ROUTING and QC. Data format of WAVEFORM and RESPONSE requests is SEED (Mini-SEED, dataless SEED, full SEED). Data format of INVENTORY, ROUTING and QC requests is XML.

More information about Arclink:

To access GEOSCOPE data through the Arclink Protocol, use:

port : 18001

Note that  the TCP port 18001 must be open in your institution firewall.

  • You can use the tool arclink_fetch. You have to install this software on your computer, be careful, you need to have at least the '2014.066' realease of arclink_fetch:
