The two long-term goals of this project are to create models of Earth’s time changing magnetic field by combining crowdsourced magnetic data with data collected by ships, aircrafts, and satellites and to map local magnetic noise sources (for e.g. power transformer and iron pipes) to improve accuracy of the magnetic navigation systems.
