A new set of corrected geomagnetic coordinates have been calculated. They are based on the field model IGRF-1980 for Epoch 1980. They differ from the earlier coordinates based on IGRF-1965 model by about one degree in latitude in the auroral oval region and a few degrees in longitude in certain areas.
