Magnetic Field Calculator
The Magnetic Field Calculator will calculate the total magnetic field, including components (declination, inclination, horizontal intensity, northerly intensity, easterly intensity, vertical intensity) and the annual change for each. Each calculation is for a specific location, elevation and date or range of dates. The calculated result can be obtained from two separate geomagnetic models, the IGRF11 or the WMM2010. Declination is calculated using the current World Magnetic Model (WMM) or International Geomagnetic Reference Field (IGRF) model. While results are typically accurate to 30 minutes of arc, users should be aware that several environmental factors can cause disturbances in the magnetic field.

HTML Format
Format version: 1
Format specification: The Magnetic Field Calculator creates an HTML pop-up window which indicates the declination, inclination, horizontal intensity, northerly component, easterly component, vertical component, and total field at the location queried and reports the annual change for each parameter.
XML Format
Format version: 1
Format specification: The Magnetic Field Calculator creates an XML document which indicates the declination, inclination, horizontal intensity, northerly component, easterly component, vertical component, and total field at the location queried and reports the annual change for each parameter.
CSV Format
Format version: 1
Format specification: The Magnetic Field Calculator creates an Comma Seperated Variable (CSV) file which indicates the declination, inclination, horizontal intensity, northerly component, easterly component, vertical component, and total field at the location queried and reports the annual change for each parameter.
