Large stores of seismic information currently exist on paper, film, and other media, containing unique records of earthquakes, geological exploration, and nuclear testing events. In order to become useful, the seismic data from the traces on these seismograms need to be extracted and outputted as computer‐readable digital data, a process referred to in this paper as digitization.

Individual paper or microfilm seismograms can be digitized by hand and this tedious process has been ongoing since the 1950s. A few software packages were developed for semi‐automatic digitization, for example, the Teseo software for digitizing scanned seismogram images by Pintore et al....
