The more extended the network is, the better the results are Suggestion: -to use

The more extended the network is, the better the results are Suggestion: -to use all the stations for the seismic location - to create a new database for the data from all the stations in Madagascar -enlarge the network to the western part -Data exchange in order to study the plate tectonics
