Before creating a Seismon project, please make sure, that you already have created a Seismon database user (see The Seismon database user).
Select the menu File ↦ new project
The Create a new project dialog will appear.
Fill in the project parameters
The name of the project.
The directory, where to create the project directory structure. Inside the specified base directory, a directory with the project name will be created. This directory holds all the project relevant files and directories. I will refer to this newly created directory as PROJECT_DIR
The database connector used to make Matlab talk to the database server. Currently there's only the JDBC option to select.
The URL or ip address of the database server. If the server runs on the computer as you are working on, then localhost should be entered.
The user with which you'd like to create the project. All the database tables linked to the new project will be created inside the user's database (see The Seismon database user).
Confirm your choices by clicking the ok button.
The database login dialog will appear.
The dialog field will already have the correct user and server host filled in.
If you are using a password for the user, type in the password.
Click the ok button to confirm the values.
After the project has been created successfully, all menu items will be available in the Seismon GUI.
