SHAPE SEED Header Assembly and Preparation Engine): A Dataless SEED Building Tool.
This software package has been obtained for the MEREDIAN consortium. It is open software.
SHAPE is a tool for easily building Dataless SEED volumes.
The inputs to SHAPE are response text files in RESP format, where RESP format is the format used by the IRIS programs for response evaluation (evalresp, jevalresp, and jplotresp), and are typically generated from SEED volumes via the IRIS rdseed program.
