I don't know how to read those farside maps 😕

They only give a rough guide as to where there is a raised level of magnetic activity. They use Carrington longitude, in the same way that the Wilcox Solar Observatory (WSO) does, to reference a fixed point on the Sun. That means that you can compare them with the WSO maps to see a more detailed (but potentially outdated) representation of the magnetic field contours. The farside maps are always between half and one day behind real time, but the jsoc version (http://jsoc.stanford.edu/data/farside/) includes a table which indicates when a particular region is expected to arrive on the East limb.
