I am trying to identify which of the available metadata templates I should use for an RS4D and RS3D that I have in my pool. Both of these stations are set to off-line mode, and since their data is not public, I cannot download the metadata directly from the StationView webpage or the FDSNWS. The RS3D and RS4D I have are both 3 Model B+ sampling at 100 Hz, and from what I’ve seen, it seems to me that I’d likely want to use the highest versions for each (RS3D - V5+, RS4D - V6+) But I do not know what differentiates those versions and how can I tell which I have on my system.
How can I identify which of these versions applies to my current RS3D and RS4D so I download the correct one from the metadata page?
as an aside to the RS team, it would be helpful to give some explanation for what the V4, V5(+), V6(+)… are supposed to represent as I have read the page several times and cannot seem to find anything that would indicate which sensors apply to the available nominal response files.
Also, there is a link given in the metadata manual page to get auto-generated metadata from gempa GmbH’s SMP Repository, but the link doesn’t lead anywhere. Would recommend removing the link or fixing it if the page still exists somewhere else.
