Synthetic time histories from large-scale three-dimensional dynamic rupture or ground-motion simulations generally constitute large data sets, which typically require hundreds of megabytes, gigabytes or even terabytes of storage capacity (see, e.g., Olsen et al.2008, 2009). For a seismologist analyzing rupture propagation or an earthquake engineer performing seismic hazard analysis, accessing large simulation output can be a tedious and error-prone procedure. For example, manual extractions of synthetic ground-motion records at a few sites of interest, or sliprate functions at desired locations on the fault, are subject to potential misinterpretation of site coordinates, units, or coordinate system orientation....
