Our mission is to maintain an easily accessible, well-organized, high-quality, searchable archive for research in seismology and earthquake engineering.
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 NCEDC is located at the Berkeley Seismological Laboratory, and has been accessible to users via the Internet since mid-1992. The NCEDC was formed as a joint project of the Berkeley Seismological Laboratory (BSL) and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) at Menlo Park in 1991, and current USGS funding is provided under a cooperative agreement for seismic network operations.
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.
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.
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.
