Day 3: Create a StationXML instrumentation database

In each case, use:

  • associated example and schema files to help you create the file(s)

  • obsinfo-validate to validate your file(s)

  • obsinfo-print for something?

  • obsinfo-makeStationXML to verify that you can create a StationXML file

Create a subnetwork file (using the example instrumentations)

Create your own subnetwork file, using existing instrumentations in the example_directory.

First-level associated files


Second-level associated files

person, network, operators, location_bases, timing_bases

Add your own sensor/datalogger/analog filter

Add and validate sensor, datalogger and/or preamplifier(s) in the example_directory. Modify an example instrumentation file to reference the new component(s) and create a StationXML file

First-level associated files

datalogger_base, sensor_base, preamplifier_base, stage_base, filter

Second-level associated files


Add your own instrumentation

Create a new instrumentation (OBS), using your newly created components and any other specific information

First-level associated files


Second-level associated files

person, operators

Putting it all together

Create a subnetwork file corresponding to a deployment of your own instrumentation.
