StDb Tools - documentation

StDb is a package containing tools for building a database of station information from geophysical observatories. The code is used through command-line scripts and include several options for querying an online fdsn archive, list the content of an existing station database, merge existing databases, and manually append new station information (e.g., for stations not hosted on any fdsn archive).

The resulting station dictionary is used in various seismic applications, such as SplitPy, RfPy, OrientPy and OBStools.


StDb was recently updated to fix a problem when running the scripts under Windows OS. The consequence is that version 0.2.1 will throw an error if the extension .py is specified when calling the scripts.
