AbstractA survey of institutes operating magnetic observatories reveals that many are dependent or somewhat dependent on revenue received for data and services. Although policies vary from institute to institute, the practice of charging for data applies only to commercial users. Other services for which charges are nor-mally applied include calibration services, instrument development and special-ized surveys. Although most institutes are not dependent on revenue for their core activities, they rely on revenue to finance many non-essential operations.
