Earthquake data:

Location : Position of Epicenter 

18.808°S 70.191°W

Depth : Depth of starting Rupture 

89.6km (55.7mi)

Region : Arica, Chile
Magnitude 4.7 Earthquake of Arica, Chile 2014-09-18

Directions and Distances :Directions and Distances from Geographical Reference in Close Proximity Which can be effected by Location Uncertainty

a)  38km (24mi) SSE of Arica, Chile

b)  89km (55mi) S of Tacna, Peru

c)  156km (97mi) N of Iquique, Chile

177km (110mi) SE of Ilo, Peru

e)  334km (208mi) SW of La Paz, Bolivia

Location Uncertainty: 
4.7 mb
± 0.06
18.808°S, 70.191°W
89.6 km
± 5.6 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
25.8 km (0.23°)

Travel Time Residual3
1.07 sec

Azimuthal Gap4

1Number of phase Applied: 
In determining location of hypocenter, applied number of observations on P waves and S waves. The greater the more accurate prediction of EQ.

2Minimum Distance:
 Horizontal distance of nearest Station measured in Km from epicenter. The smaller the more accuracy in prediction of depth of EQ.

3Travel Time Residual:
 A way of measurement of fit of arrival time observed to arrival time predicted for particular location. The smaller the better fit of data.

4Azimuthal Gap: 
Expressed in degree; the smaller the smaller the error in horizontal positioning of EQ. Large uncertainty is considered when exceeds 180° (both depth and location)
