2005 Annual Meeting: Town-Hall Meeting, SCEDC Users
Third Annual Town-Hall Meeting of Users of the Southern California Earthquake Data Center (SCEDC)
The Southern California Earthquake Data Center (SCEDC) is hosting a town-hall meeting to bring together Data Center users to improve our service to the SCEC community. The SCEDC organizes this annual meeting to solicit feedback and input from scientific and engineering users to help establish and prioritize the Data Center's goals. We are interested in knowing what products are needed to further your research objectives, and what modifications should be made to our current services to increase your productivity.
At last year's meeting, users told us that the Data Center should focus on improving station metadata. Users requested an expanded availability of dataless SEED volumes as well as simplified access to station data, e.g., a master station list for the archive from 1932-present. The Data Center has responded by developing an improved Station Information System (SIS) for the Southern California Seismic Network (SCSN). The goal of this project is to develop a simplified database-driven system that can interact with a single database source to enter, update and retrieve station metadata easily and efficiently. The timeline for this project is to have the SIS functioning as the primary metadata source for the SCSN by January 2006. We really appreciated the turnout last year and we hope this year's meeting will stimulate even more improvements at the SCEDC. This meeting will be an excellent opportunity to voice your opinions about our direction.
The meeting is open to all members of the SCEC community. If you have a specific issue you would like to see on the agenda, email Vikki Appel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
