scesv

Event summary view

Description

scesv is the summary display of the event parameters. It shows the primary information about the current event including location, time, strength, type and processing status. Additional to the current event older events can also be chosen from the eventlist in the events tab.

The two tabs of scesv are shown in Eventlist tab and Summary tab. The Events tab shows the eventlist of the time span defined on the bottom side of the window. A the Events tab is also available for other GUIs, such as scolv it can be configured in the global module configuration. The description of the Events tab in scolv provides more details.

If enabled, the map is centered around the most recent event event. Default is true.

enableFixAutomaticSolutions

Type: boolean

If enabled, an additional button is displayed which allows to switch back the latest automatic solution. This button triggers an command for scevent to prioritize automatic solutions until the next manual solution is available. Default is false.

scripts.script0.oldStyle

Type: boolean

If enabled, the parameter list of script0 is eventID, arrivalCount, magnitude, description.

If disabled, the parameter list of script0 is eventID, preferredOriginID, preferredMagnitudeID, preferredFocalMechanismID. Default is true.

scripts.script1.exportMap

Type: boolean

If enabled, the current map is exported to file. The filename is appened to the parameter list of script1. The script has to take ownership of the file. Default is false.

scripts.script1.oldStyle

Type: boolean

If enabled, the parameter list of script1 is eventID, arrivalCount, magnitude, description.

If disabled, the parameter list of script1 is eventID, preferredOriginID, preferredMagnitudeID, preferredFocalMechanismID. Default is true.
