Timing

In the Raspberry Shake, data packet time stamps are done using Network Timing Protocol (NTP) time. Timing quality is +/- 20 ms. To give you an idea what this means, consider an earthquake’s P-wave traveling at a very fast 6000 m/s. With an uncertainty of +/- 20 ms, this translates into a location uncertainty of only +/- 120 meters. For lower P-wave velocities, the uncertainties diminish. This uncertainty is well within a reasonable margin of error for locating earthquakes.
