April 21, 2016. Dmitry V. Panteleev delivered a report "Development of the user interface for the publication of geophysical information about the Earth's magnetic field, accumulated in the World Data Center for Solar-Terrestrial Physics" at a seminar of Laboratory 1.1, which took place at the Geophysical Center RAS.

The report formulated the purpose and problems faced by the developer, briefly spoke about the Earth's magnetic field and about the details of the variations of the geomagnetic field, gathered at the World Data Center for Solar-Terrestrial Physics from 1957 to the present time, the importance of these data and where they are used.

Then the reporter presented a web page with the request form for a user accessing a database of geomagnetic data, containing an interactive and customizable vector map, described the structure of a relational database based on MySQL and demonstrated the work of user interface by reference to the test database, which includes data on the minute values of the elements of the geomagnetic field. He also spoke about a possibility of acquiring and retaining the output file with selected data from the database in three different formats - wdcb, csv and IAGA2002.

In conclusion, the speaker listed the work planned for the near time - the program code optimization, adding a check for incorrect data entered by a user, and the future challenges — a program for the development of average annual values of the geomagnetic field and data on the K index, the program translated into English.

July 11, 2018. Corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, V. A. Petrov, head of the Geoinformatics Laboratory of IGEM RAS, visited GC RAS. The purpose of the visit was to participate in a working meeting in which A. Gvishiani, Director of the Geophysical Center, A. Soloviev, Deputy Director for Science, A. Rybkina, Deputy Director for Development, and researcher A. Odintsova participated.

July 6-10, 2018. Scientists of the Laboratory of Geoinformatics and Geomagnetic Studies D. V. Peregudov and M. N. Dobrovolsky took part in the joint event – the 26th Extended European Cosmic Ray Symposium and 35th Russian Cosmic Ray Conference. The event was held at the Altai State University (Barnaul, Russia).

July 2-4, 2018. Leading engineer of the Laboratory of Geoinformatics and Geomagnetic Studies of GC RAS A. Grudnev visited "Klimovskaya" observatory (Arkhangelsk region, Klimovskaya village). The main goal of the expedition is to carry out routine preventive works aimed at maintaining the working capacity of geomagnetic equipment, including a scalar magnetometer.

July 4, 2018. Two international scientific organizations - the International Council for Science (ICSU) and the International Social Science Council (ISSC) have united in a new union - the International Science Council (ISC). GC RAS represents the interests of Russia in the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG), now part of the ISC. IUGG General Secretary Alik T. Ismail-Zade was elected as the chief secretary of the newly formed Council.
