Plot Single Focal Mechanism

  • Plot a single focal mechanism by clicking the button on the map toolbar. This will only be available if you have loaded the focal mechanisms database
  • Verify options for how to plot the beach balls.
  • Double click on the earthquake location on the map.  You can then drag the focal mechanism, and double click to lock its position.  A line will connect the beach fall to the epicenter.
  • This option is not very tolerant of mistakes, so exercise caution.  The locations will not be preserved when you redraw the map, so save the image immediately.
