Abstract

The development of the TriNet/CISN Engineering Data Center is in progress. As one part of the Engineering Data Center, the California Division of Mines and Geology’s Strong Motion Instrumentation Program has developed a prototype Internet Quick Report (IQR) that uses Internet technology to distribute processed strong-motion data immediately after an earthquake. The IQR is dynamic and cumulative, containing an up-to-date table listing recorded peak ground and structural accelerations arranged in either epicentral distance or alphabetical order. Also, users will have direct access to processed strong-motion data and detailed information on instrumented stations from the IQR. The Engineering Data Center is in the process of compiling detailed structural information on instrumented stations to assist users in utilizing the strong-motion data and to allow users to search for data from specific structure types.
