Abstract

The INDIGO project aims to improve the global coverage of digital observatories by deploying digital magnetometer systems in:\ud i) Observatories where existing analog recording equipment is in need of upgrading.\ud ii) Newly established digital observatories.\ud iii) Existing digital observatories for the purpose of quality control and redundancy.\ud In implementing the project and selecting suitable sites, special attention is paid to parts of the Earth devoid of magnetic observatories, increasing the reliability and long-term operation of existing observatories and cost-effective use of local resources.\ud The Poster reviews the current status of the project. We examine the different steps and initiatives taken since the initiation of INDIGO in 2004 and assess their effectiveness in achieving progress towards our aims of improving global coverage and enhanced data quality
