The Earthquake Prediction Data Center (EPDC) of the Earthquake Research Institute, University of Tokyo, has been receiving the hypocentral parameters and arrival time data acquired through the University Information System for Earthquake Prediction Research, which is operated by Japanese national universities under the national program for earthquake prediction. Through the cooperation of these universities, the data and hypocenters were compiled and stored in the database system of the EPDC. There are two types of database; one is the real-time database and the other is the revised database which is sent by magnetic tapes from each regional center. EPDC has prepared to open these database for every seismologists to use and now the real-time database can be used by the real-time monitoring system and the revised database is open to be public as the Japan University Network Earthquake Catalog. The hypocentral coordinates and orgin times listed in the catalog are redetermined by EPDC using the arrival time data of the revised database. Although, the minimun magnitude of the earthquakes listed in the catalog is 2.0, the earthquakes listed in the catalog covers the microearthquake activities in Japan. In the present paper, we discuss the hypocenter determination procedure of the catalog and also the characteristics of the hypocenters listed in the catalog.
