English: This trackmap shows the tracks of all tropical cyclones in the Northwest Pacific Ocean from 1980 to 2005. The International Date Line is marked on the map, this is the eastern boundary of the basin.. The points show the location of each storm at 6-hour intervals. The colour represents the storm's maximum sustained wind speeds as classified in the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale (see below), and the shape of the data points represent the nature of the storm.
