Scope: Dataset
Lineage: The CD collection was a compilation of all of the earthquake catalogs, both US and non-US, in the National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) archive available in 1996. The purpose was to provide users with access to all the seismicity data in one place. The data was formatted to be accessed with the NGDC-developed GeoVu software.
