CSV event catalogue output

The CSV output for the event catalogue search is a one line per event output. Click here to load an example.

Each line has a minimum of 11 fields, which are preformatted and comma separated. Each field is in one of 3 groups:


The fields within the MAGNITUDES group are repeated for each magnitude that is returned for an event.

Group Title Position Description
EVENT EVENTID 1-9 Unique id number specific to each ISC event.
EVENT TYPE 11-12 Event type.
ORIGIN AUTHOR 16-24 Author of the prime (preferred) orgin.
ORIGIN DATE 26-35 Prime origin date.
ORIGIN TIME 37-47 Prime origin time.
ORIGIN LAT 49-56 Prime origin latitude.
ORIGIN LON 58-66 Prime origin longitude.
ORIGIN DEPTH 68-72 Prime origin depth.
ORIGIN DEPFIX 74-79 Flag set to true if the depth has been fixed in the prime origin.
MAGNITUDES AUTHOR 81-89 Magnitude author.
MAGNITUDES TYPE 91-96 Magnitude type (e.g. MW, mb, MS, etc.)
MAGNITUDES MAG 98-101 Magnitude value.
