The XML-SEED parser class parses dataless or full SEED volumes.

The XML-SEED format was proposed in [Tsuboi2004].


__doc__ str(object=’‘) -> str
__module__ str(object=’‘) -> str
__weakref__ list of weak references to the object (if defined)

_delete_blockettes_11_and_12 Deletes blockette 11 and 12.
_get_abbreviation Helper function returning the abbreviation for the given identifier
_get_resp_string Takes a file like object and a list of blockettes containing all
_parse_merged_data This method takes any merged SEED record and writes its blockettes
_parse_seed Parses through a whole SEED volume.
_parse_xml_blockette Takes the lxml tree of any blockette and returns a blockette object.
_parse_xseed Parse a XML-SEED string.
_select Selects all blockettes related to given SEED id and datetime.
_update_internal_seed_structure Takes everything in the self.temp dictionary and writes it into the volume, abbreviations and stations attributes of the class.
_update_temporary_stations Loops over all stations, finds the corresponding blockettes and changes
