ORFEUS EIDA provides standardized access to seismological waveformdata and related metadata by webservices.
Webservices allow you to simply collect data through your browser, by command line tools like 'curl' and 'wget' and
through dedicated clients/programs (e.g. ObsPy) using a URL with added parameters.
ORFEUS EIDA has implemented the FDSN standardized webservices
fdsnws-station to provide
access to waveform data (MSEED) and station metadata (StationXML).
Besides, EIDA is currently implementing
additional webservices like
eidaws-routing to locate data and services
to provide parameters that describe the waveforms.
In addition to the FDSN webservices fdsnws-dataselect and fdsnws-station, the FDSN webservice fdsnws-event
provides access to seismicity catalogues. Although this event service is not a target in EIDA,
some EIDA nodes do provide such a service.
For more information, consult the webservices page
and usage examples of the current
webservices, serving data from ORFEUS EIDA.
