The mission of the National Earthquake Information Center (NEIC) is to determine rapidly the location and size of all destructive earthquakes worldwide and to immediately disseminate this information to concerned national and international agencies, scientists, and the general public. The NEIC compiles and maintains an extensive, global seismic database on earthquake parameters and their effects that serves as a solid foundation for basic and applied earth science research. The NEIC maintained until 2012 the former 'World Data Center for Seismology'.
The Southern California Earthquake Data Center (SCEDC) operates at the Seismological Laboratory at Caltech and is the primary archive of seismological data for southern California.

Strong-motion data of engineering and scientific importance from the United States and other seismically active countries are served through the Center for Engineering Strong Motion Data(CESMD). The CESMD now automatically posts strong-motion data from an increasing number of seismic stations in California within a few minutes following an earthquake as an InternetQuick Report(IQR). As appropriate,IQRs are updated by more comprehensive Internet Data Reports that include reviewed versions of the data and maps showing, for example, the finite fault rupture along with the distribution of recording stations. Automated processing of strong-motion data will be extended to post the strong-motion records of the regional seismic networks of the Advanced National Seismic System (ANSS) outside California.
PAGER (Prompt Assessment of Global Earthquakes for Response) is an automated system that produces content concerning the impact of significant earthquakes around the world, informing emergency responders, government and aid agencies, and the media of the scope of the potential disaster. PAGER rapidly assesses earthquake impacts by comparing the population exposed to each level of shaking intensity with models of economic and fatality losses based on past earthquakes in each country or region of the world. Earthquake alerts – which were formerly sent based only on event magnitude and location, or population exposure to shaking – now will also be generated based on the estimated range of fatalities and economic losses. PAGER uses these earthquake parameters to calculate estimates of ground shaking by using the methodology and software developed for ShakeMaps. ShakeMap sites provide near-real-time maps of ground motion and shaking intensity following significant earthquakes. These maps are used by federal, state, and local organizations, both public and private, for post-earthquake response and recovery, public and scientific information, as well as for preparedness exercises and disaster planning.
The National Earthquake Database (NEDB) comprises a number of separate databases that together act as the national repository for all raw seismograph data, measurements, and derived parameters arising from the Canadian National Seismograph Network (CNSN), the Yellowknife Seismological Array (YKA), previous regional telemetered networks in eastern and western Canada (ECTN, WCTN), local telemetered networks (CLTN, SLTN), the Regional Analogue Network, and the former Standard Seismograph Network (CSN). It supports the efforts of Earthquakes Canada in Canadian seismicity monitoring, global seismic monitoring, verification of the Comprehensive nuclear Test Ban Treaty, and international data exchange. It also supports the Nuclear Explosion Monitoring project.

The VDC is a public, web-based search engine for accessing worldwide earthquake strong ground motion data. While the primary focus of the VDC is on data of engineering interest, it is also an interactive resource for scientific research and government and emergency response professionals.
The national information site on seismicity in France provides real-time information on seismic events in or near France, based on recordings from the monitoring stations of the French seismological and geodesic network Résif, from research or monitoring project stations, from stations in the networks of bordering countries (Germany, United Kingdom, Belgium, Spain, Italy, Luxembourg, Switzerland) and from stations in the global networks.
GEOFON seeks to facilitate cooperation in seismological research and earthquake and tsunami hazard mitigation by providing rapid transnational access to seismological data and source parameters of large earthquakes, and keeping these data accessible in the long term. It pursues these aims by operating and maintaining a global network of permanent broadband stations in cooperation with local partners, facilitating real time access to data from this network and those of many partner networks and plate boundary observatories, providing a permanent and secure archive for seismological data. It also archives and makes accessible data from temporary experiments carried out by scientists at German universities and institutions, thereby fostering cooperation and encouraging the full exploitation of all acquired data and serving as the permanent archive for the Geophysical Instrument Pool at Potsdam (GIPP). It also organises the data exchange of real-time and archived data with partner institutions and international centres.
Risklayer Explorer is a collaboration between Risklayer GmbH and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology's Center for Disaster Risk Management and Risk Reduction Technology (CEDIM). This website is still under development, but we are going live with it already, because we want to present data on the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) to help inform the public of the current situation. You will be able to track disaster events and read about our analysis here. Our work is a continuation of a new style of disaster research started by CEDIM in 2011 to analyze disasters immediately after their occurrence, assess the impacts, and retrace the temporal development of disaster events. We are already analyzing damaging earthquakes globally, providing you with event characteristics, earthquake's intensity footprints, as well as the population affected by earthquakes. In addition to earthquake events, we expect to be tracking and analyzing tropical cyclone, volcano and extreme weather events in 2020.
IRIS offers free and open access to a comprehensive data store of raw geophysical time-series data collected from a large variety of sensors, courtesy of a vast array of US and International scientific networks, including seismometers (permanent and temporary), tilt and strain meters, infrasound, temperature, atmospheric pressure and gravimeters, to support basic research aimed at imaging the Earth's interior.
KDP has replaced the KNMI Data Centre (KDC), which was turned off on the 27th of July 2020. Not only a change of name, but also a transition to new technologies. Initially, the KDP will be more primitive than KDC. To fulfill future ambitions, a digital KNMI transformation has been initiated. Part of this transition is the development of a new KDP as a successor of the KDC. All data on the KNMI Data Platform is free to use. For some datasets a service agreement is available, which is indicated on the page of the dataset. The KNMI Data platform provides access to KNMI data on weather, climate and seismology. Here you will find KNMI data on various subjects such as the most recent 10-minute observations, historical series, data about meteorological measuring stations, model calculations, earthquake data and satellite products. In addition to KNMI datasets, we also make datasets from other parties available, such as ECMWF, ECOMET, EUMETSAT and WMO.

The DesignSafe Data Depot Repository (DDR) is the platform for curation and publication of datasets generated in the course of natural hazards research. The DDR is an open access data repository that enables data producers to safely store, share, organize, and describe research data, towards permanent publication, distribution, and impact evaluation. The DDR allows data consumers to discover, search for, access, and reuse published data in an effort to accelerate research discovery. It is a component of the DesignSafe cyberinfrastructure, which represents a comprehensive research environment that provides cloud-based tools to manage, analyze, curate, and publish critical data for research to understand the impacts of natural hazards. DesignSafe is part of the NSF-supported Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI), and aligns with its mission to provide the natural hazards research community with open access, shared-use scholarship, education, and community resources aimed at supporting civil and social infrastructure prior to, during, and following natural disasters. It serves a broad national and international audience of natural hazard researchers (both engineers and social scientists), students, practitioners, policy makers, as well as the general public. It has been in operation since 2016, and also provides access to legacy data dating from about 2005. These legacy data were generated as part of the NSF-supported Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES), a predecessor to NHERI. Legacy data and metadata belonging to NEES were transferred to the DDR for continuous preservation and access.
