Putting "--cscan pc" in the command line will make them look like this.  At any rate, if you like the pictograms better, here's a screenshot of the text version so you can see what means what at least.

Switch to the PC interface - it has text instead of icons. However, if you still prefer the 3DO interface, here are the explanations of these signs:

FIRST COLUMN

Orbit radius (in astronomical units, one a.u. is the distance from Sol to Earth). Note that if you're scanning a moon, the orbit radius of the planet it circles is shown instead (for example, if you're scanning Luna, the orbit radius of Earth is shown).

Atmosphere density (compared to that of Earth). If it's, say, 0.6, then this planet's atmosphere is 0.6 times as dense as the Earth's. If you're scanning a gas giant, the infinity sign is shown, meaning that the atmosphere is "super-thick".

Temperature (in degrees Celsius). If it's above 100° (can't be certain about the exact number though), watch out for hotspots.

Weather class (from 1 to 8). If it's above 2, watch out for lightning.

Tectonics class (from 1 to 8). If it's above 2, watch out for earthquakes.

SECOND COLUMN

Planet mass (compared to that of Earth).

Planet radius (compared to that of Earth).

Axial tilt (in degrees).

Day length (in Earth days).
