obspy.clients.filesystem - Local filesystem (SDS or TSINDEX) client for ObsPy

This package provides read support for some local directory structures.

The SDS Client class provides read support for the SeisComP Data Structure ‘SDS’ ordered local directory structure. The SDS client supports any filetypes readable by one of ObsPy’s I/O plugins.

The TSIndex Client class provides read support for miniSEED files indexed using the EarthScope mseedindex program or Indexer class. The Indexer class provides support for indexing any arbitrary directory tree structure of miniSEED files into a SQLite3 database that follows the EarthScope tsindex database schema. This SQLite3 database can then be used by the Client for timeseries data extraction.
