Abstract: [from http://www.ig.utexas.edu/sdc/utig_overview.htm]
The purpose of this project is to organize seismic reflection/refraction data into a modern relational database management system accessible through the Internet. The system is designed principally for academic scientific use. Users include scientists, research staff and students from around the world that have high bandwidth ... Internet access. The web site provides access to metadata, SEG-Y files, navigation files, seismic profile images, processing histories and more. The main features of the web site include a geographic search engine, a metadata search engine, and metadata pages for the cruises. The databasing process includes using Excel files to enter and update metadata, which are uploaded into mySQL, a public-domain SQL server, and then PHP scripts query the metadata and directories, creating web pages, displaying images, and providing ftp links.
