Using Earth Magnetic Field in Locating Position"

December 31, 2002

The project aimed at finding a method for locating the position on earth surface by using the inherent earth geo-magnetic field. The USGE provides a geo-referenced model for the earth magnetic field in which the latitude, longitude and elevation are the input of the model while the output is the north, east and vertical earth magnetic field The project introduces a methodology for solving the inverse earth magnetic field problem in which the input are the local magnetic field measurements and the output is the point latitude, longitude and vertical position of the point of interest.
