This chapter will describe the basic usage of Seismon. Seismon has been created to quickly access waveform data with the focus on seismic datasets but not limited to it. It should provide an interface for the researcher to play around with the data using Matlab's great possibilities of data processing and visualization. I always see Seismon as a kind of Seismic Prototyping Software which lets you realize your ideas without having to mess around with waveform data management, data organization and waveform visualization. These things should be minor parts in a scientific work and more time should be spent in really working on whats going on in your mind - whatever this will be...
