ObsPy: A Python Toolbox for seismology/seismological observatories.

ObsPy is an open-source project dedicated to provide a Python framework for processing seismological data. It provides parsers for common file formats, clients to access data centers and seismological signal processing routines which allow the manipulation of seismological time series (see Beyreuther et al. 2010, doi: 10.1785/gssrl.81.3.530 ; Megies et al. 2011, doi: 10.1785/gssrl.81.3.530; Krischer et al. 2015, doi: 10.1088/1749-4699/8/1/014003).

The goal of the ObsPy project is to facilitate rapid application development for seismology.
