The tool below allows you to navigate through the 34,218 texts comprising the main body of information underlying the CFTI5Med. Through selections (search) and sorts (for each column), the tool allows for total interactivity with the CFTI database. For each record, clicking on "info" allows the user to access an information window that lists the dates of the earthquakes/ earthquakes sequences for which the specific text or source has been used. A click on the date allows direct access the record corresponding to the selected earthquake in the CFTI5Med website. Where transcripts or scans of the individual text extracts relating to each earthquake sequence are available, the link to the CFTI5Med web page is active, allowing consultation of all the information the database contains for that specific sequence.

This tool has been designed and developed by Gabriele Tarabusi orcid icon with the contribution of Rita Chiara Taccone orcid icon (technical and system support).
