An overview of the Magnetic toolset

The Magnetic toolset contains one tool that allows you to calculate magnetic component fields for point data. The tool can compute nine magnetic component fields, including declination and inclination.



Magnetic Calculator

Computes the magnetic field at point locations for a date and altitude you specify. Magnetic field values are written to one or more fields in the input point data. Date values must fall between 1/1/2005 and 12/31/2014. The magnetic value is calculated using the World Magnetic Model. The magnetic field values depend upon the magnetic component type. There are nine different magnetic component types. You can calculate all nine types into nine or more fields.
