Rapid featured in the newsletter of the Network of Research Infrastructures for European Seismology

RapidSeis: a NERIES spin-off pilot

The objective of this six-month pilot project was to provide a simplified system to perform analysis of seismic waveform data through a web browser. The specific aims were that no data or application be download to the user’s computer, for the user to create algorithms to customise the analysis and to allow sharing of algorithms within the seismological community.

Rapid development of computational web portals

Speaker(s): 
Presentation Type: 
invited

Rapid is a cost-effective and efficient way of designing and delivering portal interfaces to applications that require remote compute resources. The aim of Rapid is to make completing these tasks as simple as ordering a DVD or booking a flight on the web.

Rapid Release Version 1.0

Version: 
1.0

The plugin system is changed, with an 'execute' and a 'retrieve output' phase.
Plugins report errors better.
The <onload> event is added, which is triggered when a new page is loaded.
UI elements <editor>,<checkbox> and <checkboxlist> are added.
Rapid now supports Pluto versions 1 and 2 and a 'minimal' JSR168 version.

RapidSeis: Rapid Portals for Seismological Waveform Data

Final project report for JISC, with links to all individually created deliverables and progress posts. RapidSeis has produced a scientific gateway via a web portal that allows seismologist to pick up data from Orfeus—the central repository for earthquake data in Europe—and then run several analyses on these data. Advanced users can also create new analyses and share these with all the other users.

RapidSeis workflow explained

RapidSeis consists of two porlets that run within the NERIES portal. Both assume the user logged in has already filled his/her cart with seismological data.
