AbstractIn 2001, the Geological Survey of Canada started building a modern strong motion seismograph network in southwestern British Columbia, which has now grown to more than 100 instruments. Our experience shows that a dense network of real-time communicating instruments does not have to be associated with high initial investments and can be operated with a modest budget. This paper presents details of the
instrument employed, the design of the new network and the performance of real time client information systems.
