ObsPy contains local alternatives to some of the calculation tools offered by the IRIS web services. Consider using them when working within ObsPy:
IRIS Web Service
Equivalent ObsPy Function/Module
Web service Interfaces
Each of the following methods directly wrap a single Web service provided by IRIS (https://service.iris.edu/irisws/):
evalresp()- evaluates instrument response information stored at the IRIS DMC and outputs ASCII data or Bode Plots.
resp()- provides access to channel response information in the SEED RESP format (as used by evalresp)
sacpz()- provides access to instrument response information (per-channel) as poles and zeros in the ASCII format used by SAC and other programs
timeseries()- fetches segments of seismic data and returns data formatted in either MiniSEED, ASCII or SAC. It can optionally filter the data.
traveltime()- calculates travel-times for seismic phases using a 1-D spherical Earth model.
distaz()- calculate the distance and azimuth between two points on a sphere.
flinnengdahl()- converts a latitude, longitude pair into either a Flinn-Engdahl seismic region code or region name.
Please see the documentation for each method for further information and examples to retrieve various data from the IRIS DMC.
