Any function for retrieving data on a station_based mode?

Hi there,

I wonder if there is any function in obspy that can help me to retrieve data on a station-based mode?

For example, I have the coordinate of station A and I would like to get events within back azimuths of 0~30 degrees of station A, then which function is the best to use? I checked get_events, there are only options limiting the radius instead of back azimuth, besides that, I cannot find any others.



Hi Claire,

the fdsnws web services don’t natively support these kind of queries so you’d have to do some manual work by first downloading all events and then filtering these based on the back-azimuth. Some fdsnws event providers might offer extensions to do these kind of queries but I’m not aware of any that allow for azimuthal queries.
