TCTiSe (Text Compressed Times Series) - an open format for storing compressed any time series.

The main advantages are:

  • clear and simple internal structure
  • easy implementation of code for client applications through the use of freeware algorithms compression of text strings
  • High compression of original serieses (higher than SEED, CSS, WIN (Datamark), gcf (Guralp))
  • scalability due to the specialized units
  • Data block length is defined based on the time criterion

TCTiSe perfect for storage of geophysical observations (such as seismic, acoustic, etc.)
