Developing a good model of Earth's crustal magnetic field requires significant amounts of surface or near-surface data. The National Centers for Environmental Information could not have developed the Enhanced Magnetic Model (EMM) without the support and participation of the following:

Satellite data provided by the Swarm Satellite operated by the European Space Agency and also the Champ satellite operated by the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences.
