The Résif-DC’s Web services provide FDSN compliant access to a variety of information, including data and metadata from the IRIS DMC databases. FDSN Specifications can be found here

Web services can be accessed in a number of different ways:

  • Small requests can be handled through your browser.
  • Dedicated clients are available for making more complex or larger queries.
  • Various schemas are available for download.
  • Automated or scripted requests can be made using programs such as wget or curl.

Real time data

All open data arriving in (near) real time at Résif-DC are available from the SeedLink server.

The Web services should not be used to retrieve continuous, real time data via repeated polling. Instead, the SeedLink server should be used when continuous data streams are needed.
