A Python Toolbox for seismology/seismological observatories.

Project Description

ObsPy is an open-source project dedicated to provide a Python framework for processing seismological data. It provides parsers for common file formats and seismological signal processing routines which allow the manipulation of seismological time series (see Beyreuther et. al. 2010, Megies et. al. 2011).

The goal of the ObsPy project is to facilitate rapid application development for seismology.


The ObsPy Tutorial is maybe the best point to get a first impression of what ObsPy is all about. The tutorial is a collection of short example programs with explanations and program output.


The functionality is provided through the following packages:

General packages:

Waveform import/export plug-ins:

Database or Web service access clients:
