Abstract. Geomagnetic observatories use classical theodolites equipped with single axis flux-gate magnetometers known as declination inclination magnetometers (DIM) to determine absolute values of declination and inclination angles. This instrument and the measurement method is very reliable but needs a lot of handwork and experience. The authors developed and built a non-magnetic theodolite which gives all measurement data in digital form. Use of this instrument significantly decreases possibility of observation errors and minimizes handwork. The new instrument is presented in this paper together with first measurement results in comparison to the classical DIM.

Short summary
The authors developed and built a digital non-magnetic declination inclination magnetometer which gives all measurement data in digital form. Use of this instrument significantly decreases possibility of observation errors and minimizes handwork. We showed that this device is suitable for absolute magnetic control measurements, and its more convenient, user friendly and effective than the traditional ones.
