    # Use a different event region than the initial map region
    apps.eqview.widget.abc.eventRegion = 20x40+45-8
    

2023.174

Fixed

  • Fix setting configured mode in stationview (v2)

Added

  • Add forwarding of SeisComP scheme.precision values to web apps v2. To restore the current precision display, the following values have to be configured in gaps.cfg:

    scheme {
      precision {
        depth = 0
        distance = 1
        location = 1
        magnitude = 1
        originTime = 0
        pickTime = 1
        traceValues = 1
        rms = 1
        uncertainties = 1
      }
      map {
        stationSize = 25
      }
    }

  • Respect forceHTTP setting in traceview@v2.

2022-07-13

Fixed

  • Support environment variables with tileLayers.*.db

2022-07-11

Added

  • Added additional tile layer configuration. In order to provide higher detailed maps in certain areas it is now possible to define a mbtiles database for particular zoom levels and bounding rects. An example configuration looks like this:

    tileLayers = myarea
    tileLayers.myarea {
        db = /path/to/map.mbtiles
        levels = 11:16
        rects = +2048+2048+2064+2064
    }
    

2022-05-17

Changed

  • Update documentation on installation and setup

2022-04-28

Added

  • Allow configuration of event age color scale with scheme.colors.originSymbol.age.gradient. This setting will currently be only used by frontends in version 2 and later.

2022-04-27

Added

  • Fetch event type list and event type certainty list from server

2022-04-26

Fixed

  • Read spatial vector data from standard vector directory of the corresponding SeisComP release

2022-04-25

Changed

  • Renamed the v1 frontend assets directory static to assets

  • OriginLocatorView fetches known event types from backend and presents a sorted list

  • Frontends v2 do respect colorByAge settings.

Fixed

  • v1 frontends used a wrong maximum age value of 210 days instead of 1 month. This has been fixed. All events older than 30 days are being rendered in gray now.

2022-04-14

Added

  • Add install instructions for basic setup and web server integration

Fixed

  • Typos and default values in description XML

2022-03-17

Added

  • Added landing page for frontends v2. To configure it use

    indexTemplate = @DATADIR@/gaps/index-v2.cs
    

2022-02-23

Fixed

  • Fixed typo in description: showWidgetsBounds -> showWidgetBounds

2022-02-21

Fixed

  • Fixed display of region bound rectangle. Due to a regression the initial map region bound in eqview was always shown and not the widget region bounds. As both behaviors are desirable, an additional configuration option has been introduced: apps.eqview.showWidgetBounds. To enable the old behavior, set

    apps.eqview.showWidgetBounds = true
    

    which takes precedence over apps.eqview.showRegionBounds.

2022-01-10

Changed

  • Add reasonable ITAPER() to default filters for optimizing data filtering

  • Update documentation

2021-10-07

Changed

Fixed

  • Fix redirection to index.html

2020-09-30

Fixed

  • Fix OriginLocatorView settings input fields which were not applied correctly on change.

2020-09-15

Fixed

  • Fix handling of empty server responses in Web applications. This is important for QuakeLink servers which are configured with a long poll timeout.

2019-09-24

Changed

  • Remove tile db configuration from default configuration in order that the global configuration is not overridden by default. This change might break existing installations that does not set the tileDB parameter in the configuration file explicitly. To fix the issue add the following line to the GAPS configuration.

    tileDB = @DATADIR@/gaps/zoom12.mbtiles
    

    Alternatively, the map location can be also defined in the global or GAPS configuration file with

    map.location = @DATADIR@/gaps/zoom12.mbtiles
    

2019-04-26

Added

  • Play EQView audio alerts in a loop

  • Added stop button to EQView widgets in case an audio alert is played

2019-01-24

Fixed

  • Fixed ITAPER() filter which caused invalid data

2019-01-22

Fixed

  • Fixed map centering in OriginLocatorView. Sometimes the map is centered 360 degrees left of the event or right of it so that it looks like the event is not shown at all.

2019-01-15

Added

  • Added configurable reference place to which the distance and azimuth of the currently selected event is calculated and shown in the details

2018-12-21

Changed

  • Upgraded critical external web components to latest version

2018-04-05

Fixed

  • Report correct content-type for URL directories, e.g. localhost/stationview/. Not reporting it prevents Google Chrome from rendering the page.

2018-03-07

Fixed

  • Fixed connection state in StationView which was shown always as disconnected once a connection to QuakeLink returned with an error even after a reconnect.

2018-03-05

Fixed

  • If the maximum bound rectangle is given (apps.mapRegion.*) then station symbols are placed in the map that way that they are inside this rectangle. E.g., setting the rectangle’s longitude range from 0 to 360 will center the map at 180 degrees and add station symbols left and right of the date line.

2018-02-26

Added

  • Added EQView configuration parameter apps.eqview.externalData which allows to show external (with respect to the local inventory) referenced waveform data. This parameter is by default true. If set set to false then only stations which are part of the local inventory, which have bindings and which are associated with the shown event will be added to the list of traces.

2018-02-20

Fixed

  • Fixed waveform acquisition over HTTP which sometimes resulted in an interrupted data stream. Although the stream recovered by requesting the data again, the behavior was caused by a bug.

2018-01-31

  • Added OriginLocatorView settings tab to control some picker time window settings. More probably to come.

2017-02-10

Added

  • GAPS requires now station bindings to enable station inventory and configuration for web applications. Unbound stations will not be shown in e.g. StationView.

    apps.mapview.customStationLink = "http://geofon.gfz-potsdam.de/fdsnws/station/1/query?network=${net}&station=${sta}&level=resp&format=sc3ml"
