Binder: Efficient Management of Station-Channel Names and Locations (SCNL)

Binder is a shared network utility that allows Nanometrics applications to pair instrument data with seismic station metadata. This pairing allows each channel in the application to be uniquely identified with a station-channel name and location code (SCNL) for binding with locations and/ or instruments. Binder provides network managers with a much higher level of network transparency than would be possible with less sophisticated naming conventions and network management tools.

An organization, no matter how well designed, is only as good as the people who live and work in it.
