Nice maps! Thanks for this big effort!
I'm running an IRIS "Seismographs in School" station in my
basement. IRIS has provided more than 140 such stations to educators
around the country, and the number increases by about 30 per year.
It would be great if amateurs living near a school or museum station
would stop by to see if they could use any help in operating the
equipment or interpreting their seismograms. Most of these stations
are registered with
Unfortunately they don't have an interactive station map like the one
you maintain for the PSN.
Or, if your local school doesn't have a seismic station, but does
have an interested teacher, it would be great to help the teacher set
one up. They could apply to obtain one from IRIS, or apply for a
small grant to purchase one for about $600. There are many sources
of small grants for teachers. All of the IRIS teachers use an AS-1
with AmaSeis so that it's easy to compare records between
schools. Some of the helicorder images are posted here:
