Earthquake data:

Location : Position of Epicenter 

6.955°N 125.305°E

Depth : Depth of starting Rupture 

35.6km (22.1mi)

Region : Baracatan, Philippines

Magnitude 4.7 Earthquake of Baracatan, Philippines 2014-10-19

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

a)  12km (7mi) W of Baracatan, Philippines

b)  17km (11mi) WNW of Astorga, Philippines

c)  21km (13mi) NNE of Bansalan, Philippines

22km (14mi) E of Makilala, Philippines

e)  969km (602mi) SSE of Manila, Philippines

Location Uncertainty: 
4.7 mb
± 0.10
6.955°N, 125.305°E
35.6 km
± 3.9 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
32.8 km (0.30°)

Travel Time Residual3
1.23 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)
