Exporting Data

For security reasons, FirstMo.swf does not write data to the user's hard drive. To export data, users, may capture a screen shot, or use the print menu to generate a .pdf file. Options exist to show or hide the background image and the XML data. The latter can also be hidden by decreasing the beach ball transparency. However, it is simplest to just record the best fit strike, dip, and rake data as this is all that is required for importing into rendering applications. Note that the size of the beach ball in FirstMo.swf is chosen to match the first arrival stereonet. However, to show a full moment tensor solution on a map, the focal mechanism will be resized to correspond to the event's moment magnitude.
