Details

Liss2ew is the earthworm module for receiving trace data from the Live Internet Seismic: Server http://earthquake.usgs.gov/monitoring/operations/. The LISS is a very simple service that provides trace data in miniSEED format in near-real-time over the Internet. The liss2ew module will connect to one LISS, read selected streams of trace data, and write that trace data into the earthworm transport ring. One LISS normally has data for a single station. One or more components are sent together in the data stream. In some cases, one component is provided in more than one sample-rate. The `location code' is used in this case to label the different kinds of data.

The miniSEED format may contain a few other types of blockettes besides the Data-Only blockette. (You can read the PDF version of the SEED manual if you want to know more.) Currently liss2ew ignores these non-trace-data blockettes.

Besides the ASL, there are several other LISS servers. Some digital seismographs produce miniSEED. There is be an earthworm LISS server module, ew2liss. This will allow the exchange of earthworm trace data by an alternate format to the current import/export combination.
