Resolution No.3 (1967): Data collection for the World Magnetic Survey program

The IAGA considering that all magnetic survey data are of great value for the compilation of world magnetic charts as well as regional and local charts, and that the organisations listed below customarily engage in the compilation of world magnetic charts:

  1. Royal Greenwich Observatory
  2. U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey
  3. Izmiran USSR

therefore urgently requests that all organisations which have conducted magnetic surveys under the World Magnetic Survey program in recent years, or which will make magnetic surveys in the future, send the survey data to one or more of the World Data Centers and/or to one or more of the three organisations named above. If the data are in the form of magnetic charts it is recommended to add, if available, digital data of the survey in question.
