The basis for any seismological studies is the theory of wave propagation in models of elastic media adequate to the real Earth. Earth's (effective) elastic material properties are typically anisotropic and heterogeneous. We give an overview of recent results on determining these properties regionally and globally using different types of data using both active and passive, boundary and
interior sources. Techniques from microlocal analysis and from Finsler geometry come into play.
