USGS automated ground motion processing software

September 25, 2019

The goal of this project is to update, restructure, and consolidate existing USGS ground-motion processing software to incorporate recent advances from researchers at the USGS, PEER, and others. It will standardize tools for multiple USGS ground-motion products and enable scientists within the USGS and the external community to develop and expand ground-motion datasets used in many different applications. Additionally, it will provide a standard interface for local storage of recorded and synthetic ground-motion waveforms and intensity metrics, as well as event and station metadata, in one container that can be easily distributed. The resulting open-source software will provide customizable processed ground-motion waveforms and intensity metrics, while adhering to USGS software standards, including documentation, peer review, testing, and continuous integration.
