A primer for reading our forecasts
The top section shows the map of Japan. The tiles indicate the area according to our data analysis where a temblor may strike. Temblors are color-coded to indicate the level of magnitude. All of our forecasts are sequentially numbered. The first forecast of the year is numbered as 001. Follow the attached line to see the date of publication, magnitude for land and sea then the maximum shindo level .
Below the map is the calendar section. The date of publication is in red with an arrow indicating the date to show where the forecasts are; to the right of the arrow shows means the forecast is active. (To the left means the forecast is inactive therefore the color is grey.) On the left of the calendar shows further information for each forecast. Area, forecast number, magnitude for land and sea followed by maximum shindo levels for three categories – minimum 30 km from the earth’s surface, 30-60 km from the earth’s surface and over 60 km from the earth’s surface.
