speaking about depth.
I usually don't bother much with depth, except when something extreme jumps out at me.
Sure I look at local ones around where I live, usually to see why I didn't feel them, often they are at 60km or so around here, which is fairly deep
and we hardly feel those below M4.5
But I'm going to run some NZ depth graphs for a while, I started with East Cape Ridge last week and found it quite informative when the figures turned
into a S-N Lat/Long/Depth graph.
here is one I did for NZ 09/10/2016
I'm going to 200km as the max at the moment, but I know we do get some under Taranaki at 600km sometimes.
I think you all know the layout of NZ, its pretty much N to S and W to E
As far as a Longitude based graph I can't figure out how to run the Y axis in both +/- Longitudes, ie past East Cape Ridge we are into the -
Longitudes, due to the Antimeridian Line,
So all I could do is maybe 2 seperate W-E graphs, one across the North Island (always busy) and another one across Fiordland (when there are enough
events to plot).
Christchurch isn't worth graphing as they are all 5-11km.
