  • GeoNet collects information about the intensity of shaking that people experienced during an earthquake. There have been a few different varieties of reports in the history of collecting this data. Today, GeoNet collects Felt Rapid reports based on a cartoon representation of shaking. After very large earthquakes we provide an additional long form survey, Felt Detailed, for those who would like to provide more information. The Felt Rapid API can be found here: and more information on the Felt Reports can be found here on the GeoNet website: DOI: Cite as: GNS Science. (2015).

  • New Zealand network of tsunameters in the southwest Pacific. Tsunameters, devices or systems that detect tsunamis, often use Deep-ocean Assessment and Reporting of Tsunami (DART) real-time monitoring systems. Information about the DART network can be found here: Sensor and instrument metadata can be found at DART Raw and Detided data is available via the Tilde API (, the Tilde UI ( and for data-tutorials see ( The detided constituents are generated by NIWA and can be found here: DART BPR data. The BPR records are available in Tilde (using "Method=raw"). This also includes Temperature (water-temperature) and Pressure (water-pressure) data. DART Trigger Catalogue.

  • The GeoNet earthquake catalogue contains the technical information of all known seismological events. The dataset includes information about the events source parameters such as hypocenter, magnitude, arrival time of seismic phases as well as velocity model used and uncertainties in the parameters. Since the 1930's, earthquakes in the catalogue have been determined by instrumental records. Prior to that, estimates were made from oral and written records. At present, a densified network of weak motion and strong motion sensors is used nationally to monitor events in regions that are affected by large seismic activity and volcanism. Around 20000 events are recorded every year in the catalogue. GeoNet observations and earthquake source parameters are currently used for rapid response, risk assessment and research purposes.
