Summary
Abstract: The GMCORD program provides a determination of the geomagnetic coordinates for any selected global location. The program uses a linear interpolation of the dipole Gauss coefficients from the geomagnetic reference field models (see file ALL-IGRF.TAB below). The fitting allows specification of any date from the first day of January 1940 to the projected values on the last day of December 2015. This program uses a computational method devised by Fraser-Smith (1987) and originally coded by W.H. Campbell.
