Hello Web Service Users,

The irisws-distaz service has been updated:
http://service.iris.edu/irisws/distaz/1/

This update brings the following changes to the service:

* A new geodesic library, GeographicLib, is being used by the service to calculate azimuth, backazimuth, and distance between source and event locations.
* Several XML elements have been added to the service output to support the added library functionality, including:
— <ellipsoid> containing the attribute "name" and sub-elements <semiMajorAxis> and <flattening> to identify the title and geometry of the ellipsoid used by the library,
— <fromlat> and <fromlon> to more explicitly identify the raypath source,
— <tolat> and <tolon> to more explicitly identify the raypath target, and
— <distanceMeters> to calculate the raypath length in units of meters
* The service has also been updated to the most recent version of the WebServiceShell (v 2.2.2). No change in user experience is expected with this change.

More details about the GeographicLib library can be found at the following address: http://geographiclib.sourceforge.net/

Regards,
IRIS DMC
