INTERMAGNET Data Portal Moving

The host for the INTERMAGNET data portal is moving from Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) to the British Geological Survey (BGS). A number of services provided by NRCan, including web site download and ftp access to INTERMAGNET provisional and real-time data, will stop at the end of November 2022. Replacement services are already available from BGS. Not all the data that is available from NRCan’s implementation of the data portal is currently available at the BGS data portal, but work is hand to complete the transfer of all data by the end of November

  1. The way you access data via the new services at BGS differs from how you have accessed data in the past using the services provided by NRCan. We encourage you to try the new services available at BGS before the services at NRCan close down. The following facilities are available:

We encourage you to use the web service in preference to the ftp service. It will become increasingly difficult to access ftp servers in the future – support for ftp in web browsers has already been largely withdrawn. INTERMAGNET is likely to withdraw the ftp service in the future.
