Figures are generally photos, graphs and static images that would be represented in traditional pdf publications.
The nomogram developed for cost–benefit analysis of Operational Earthquake Forecasting actions. An isopleth (red dotted line) is shown for an example application for a threshold PGA of 0.05 g (left-most axis), a daily probability of an earthquake of magnitude ≥ 4 of 4%, a week-long (7 days) OEF action and a L/C ratio of 1000 leading to R = 3.5 (right-most axis).
It was drawn using a type 3 nomogram and the software Pynomo. See open-access article by Douglas and Azarbakht (2020) for more details.
