In seismograph computations assuming a uniform rate of velocity increase with depth, a "wave front-wave path" chart consisting of sets of orthogonal circles is often used. The present paper describes a transformation by which the wave fronts become a set of concentric circles with the wave paths as radii, while the cartesian coordinates representing vertical and horizontal distances in the ground become orthogonal circles.
