Historical data access: COMPLETE!

All historical data dating all the way back to the beginning of the Raspberry Shake project is now available via FDSNWS and Swarm. Enjoy!



I am considering installing Raspberry Shakes at a research field site in Colorado and I am looking for data from the area overlapping in time with a USGS dataset in 2016-2018. According to the IRIS Station Metadata, a few RS’s were installed then. For example:


However, these data are not available from the IRIS server and I have not had any luck with FDSNWS at https://fdsnws.raspberryshakedata.com/fdsnws/dataselect/1/builder

I am able to access one set of historical data using SWARM connecting the the RS Community CAPS site. For example, AM R0F46 has data going back to about 2019-10-28.

Are the above data available?

Many thanks


Hi Ben, I am noticing this too. I will put in a support ticket for it. This data exists, but for some reason FDSN doesn’t know it’s there. Thanks for reporting.

Brilliant - thank you!

Dear Ian

Is FDSN able to locate the requested data? I’d be grateful if you could let me know if there has been a response, or what the typical timeline is for such a request.

Many thanks,


Hi Ben,

We are working on it. It’s less easy than it might sound to set up a reliable and secure archive of 20+ TB (and counting) of seismic data.

We are close. We’ll let you know when we have it up and running.
