[1]  The measuring complex and Database of Borok Geophysical Observatory (branch of the Schmidt Institute of Physics of the Earth, Russian Academy of Sciences) are considered as the example of the application of information technologies in geophysical observation. The measuring complex of the observatory and the basic types of observation are described. Specificity of information technologies for all stages of working with geophysical data, including logging, processing, storage and access to them, are discussed. Principles of design of digital data logging systems and networks, their architecture and the software are presented. Methods and programs of raw data processing (both to store and to simplify access to the data), architecture and software of the database are explained. Various methods to access geophysical data, caused by various methods of data storage are characterized. Access via Internet, as the most universal, operative and convenient for users, is considered. The experiences of Borok Geophysical Observatory in the international networks of magnetic observatories are described.
