Resolution No.8 (1967): Establishment of World Digital Data Centers

The IAGA considering the growing need for magnetic data in machine-readable form, recommends the establishment of several world digital data centres (WDDC) for Geomagnetism (USA, USSR, Great Britain, Japan), to receive, catalogue, and file magnetic data. These data shall then be supplied in standard formats on request to suitable institutions for scientific purposes by appropriate arrangements. The IAGA also encourages the WDCs to perform other functions as user demand indicates, so far as they are able. It is further suggested that a manual for operation of the WDCs be prepared.
