Fractal is one of the powerful analysis for the study of complex natural phenomena. This paper employed fractal analysis in seismology based on the Statistical fractal concept and gave a simple overview to fractal characteristics of seismic activity in the spatio-temporal distribution. Analyzed by the R/S scale invariance of seismic time sequence and time interval sequence, this paper explored the self-shot fractal characteristics in the seismic activity.
