The paper describes the methods of producing magnetic charts used in the recent Atlas of the Earth's magnetic field. Evolution and spatial-temporal variations of the geomagnetic field are recovered from 1500 to 2010. This Atlas represents a unified set of physical, general geographic, thematic, including historical charts, as well as background (text and spreadsheet) materials.
