In the interest of promoting seismology among citizen scientists, those OSOP-made software components that fall under the OSOP Raspberry Shake Client-Side Software License are available at no additional cost to hobbyists for personal use and school teachers for educational use. Any individual, institute, university or company that intends to use a Raspberry Shake product within a government earthquake monitoring, scientific research and/ or commercial setting (e.g., Geophysical Institutes, NSF-funded grant proposals, Oil and Gas or mining companies, etc.), should purchase one license per unit.
The Raspberry Shake comes with a number of licensed and unlicensed software components. Software components that fall under the OSOP Raspberry Shake Client-Side Software License are denoted by (*) in the list below:
Raspberry Shake Software Components include:
Licensed modules are delivered as binaries that run on the Raspberry Shake board and Raspberry Pi computer. Note that SeedLink 2.6 and SWARM are open-source software packages developed by Geofon and the USGS, respectively. They are free to download and use for all parties- private, personal, hobbyist, institutional or commercial.
The OSOP Raspberry Shake Client-Side Software License includes use of some web-based features such as data sharing and recent earthquake detection display. When data sharing is turned on, the data sharing happens through the ODF-MSG-ROUTER protocol via the centralized Raspberry Shake server. Server-side software elements such as the Zero Configuration Server (the server-side counter-component of the ODF-MSG-ROUTER) can be licensed separately, allowing a geophysical institute, for example, to create their own data sharing platform for Raspberry Shake.
