Resolution No.3 (1997): Magnetic anomaly data (Division V)

IAGA, considering the importance of magnetic anomaly mapping for global geological and tectonic interpretation, and noting the existence of numerous sets of low-level airborne and marine magnetic anomaly data and the rapid progress being made in retaining and compiling existing data, regrets that many data sets remain classified or confidential, even after they have outlived the original purpose of acquisition, and urges the custodians of such data sets to release them (or non-sensitive versions of them) into the public domain as soon as possible.
