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.
