Personal WaveLab 1.0 wants to be the starting point for an ex novo development of seismic time-series analysis
procedures for Windows-based personal computers. Our objective is two-fold. Firstly, being itself a stand-alone
application, it allows to do ‘‘basic’’ digital or digitised seismic waveform analysis. Secondly, thanks to its architectural
characteristics it can be the basis for the development of more complex and power featured applications. An expanded
version of PWL, called SisPick!, is currently in use at the Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (Italian
Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology) for real-time monitoring with purposes of Civil Protection. This means that
about 90 users tested the application for more than 1 year, making its features more robust and efficient.
SisPick! was also employed in the United Nations Nyragongo Project, in Congo, and during the Stromboli
emergency in summer of 2002.
The main appeals of the application package are: ease of use, object-oriented design, good computational speed,
minimal need of disk space and the complete absence of third-party developed components (including ActiveX).
Windows environment spares the user scripting or complex interaction with the system.
The system is in constant development to answer the needs and suggestions of its users.
Microsoft Visual Basic 6 source code, installation package, test data sets and documentation are available at no cost.
