Whats the point of this guide?
So when you jump into a wh, you can scan more effectively. Hopefully you will learn to identify signatures into 'hard, medium, easy' categories. Using this method you can 'ninja scan' straight for the wh's static, while ignoring all the other sigs, or scan specifically for whatever your looking for.
*Sig % strength have changed a lot since the patch a few months ago,, but you still separate the signatures into 'easy, medium, hard'**
What To Do
-Refer to the screenshot above for probe placement.
-Sometimes holes can be big, or planets in funky placements,, try and be creative with the z-axis, or use 2 probes that do not overlap. Also important to keep them equal distance from the center.
What Does Easy, Average and Hard Mean?!
-There are three categories all non-wormhole signatures in w-space can fall into.
-Learn to place probes and identify the 3 'groups' of % strengths that you get.
-Some outbound wh's strengths do not fit into the 3 categories and stick out, they are easily identifiable, otherwise the rest of the whs fall into the 3 categories
-There will be % strenght deviation, but if done right they won't overlap into your other 'categories'
Understanding The Numbers
A great free IGB WH tool is www.wormnav.com. That tool also has the signature sizes that this guide uses. Siggy is another amazing wormhole tool, but it is for private use only.
Size 10 = Easy
Size 6.67 = Between Medium/Hard
Size 5 = Medium
Size 4 = Harder Than Medium
Size 2.5 = Hard
Size 2.2 = Harder than hard
Non-Wormhole Signature Strengths
Size 10 = Shitty Ladars, Shitty Gravs
Size 5 = Average Ladars, Average Gravs
Size 2.5 = Good Ladars, Good Gravs, Radars, Mags

Now Scan Forward Ye Minions!
If this guide has not made you fall asleep yet, here's a boring video of me scanning!
Need to give a shout-out to Robert Fish for introducing me to this concept, and giving me his list to add to my own.
Also need to give credit to Wrack for sharing his sig list with me, helping make this list more complete (and accurate)
Thanks to Two Step for double checking some inconsistency's .
Before I get flamed by a ton of bitter vets, I'd just like to say:
This is an old tutorial I've had for my corp for ages. Figured I might as well share this for those that may not know about it. But for most serious wormholers this is old news.
Basically, I'm trying to compile a complete list of wormhole signature size's. This is my collection of holes that I've manually scanned and wrote down. So I probably am missing a few wormholes, esp. the lower class ones as I don't come across them all too often. I feel that I've gotten 95% of holes a normal c5 static dweller would come across daily. If you guys notice that I'm missing any, please post and I'll add it to the list. And yes, this list may be innacurate, but its better than nothing. The people that possess the uber databases won't share their hard earned intel for free, and I don't blame them.
People and corps in wormholes are generally very secretive about this type of knowledge, I don't give a shit,, so here you go failheap...........your welcome Just please don't pass it on to the asshats at battleclinic or eve-online forums!
PS. Can an admin help me fix the size of my screenshot so it doesnt break the page? thx
