The Application of Geomagnetic Models in Flight Path Planning
The geomagnetic field is a vector field, and its elements in different regions can match the latitude and longitude uniquely (Fairfield and Mead in J Geophys Res 80(4):535–542, 1975) . Therefore, an intuitive understanding of the geomagnetic information on exploration area is vital for geomagnetic navigation or flight path planning (Matteo and Morton in Radio Sci 46(4), 2016) . The method proposed in this paper will get the geomagnetic information, which reflects the geomagnetic characteristics more intuitively after visualization. In addition, the characteristics of three geomagnetic models, EMM, WMM, and IGRF, are also compared and analyzed, which will be used for reference when planning the flight path (Kim and Chang in Adv Space Res 61(8), 2018) .
