Access AusPass data with ObsPy

These (growing list of) examples show how to access and manipulate AusPass data through FDSN standards with the python module ObsPy. It is by no means complete. Fortunately the ObsPy documentation is EXCELLENT and should be bookmarked.
Fundamentally the obspy.clients.fdsn package contains a client to access web servers that implement the FDSN web service definitions. Once the connection to AusPass has been made with, all functions of obspy.clients.fdsn can be used to download metadata (e.g. get_stations) and seismic data (e.g. get_waveforms).
