The archives of the magnetic data of the

observatories "Magadan" MGD, "Cape Schmidt" CPS, "Khabarovsk" KHB and

"Paratunka" PET of IKIR FEB RAS, presented at WDC and INTERMAGNET and

in local database of observatories, are considered. The hourly value

datasets of MGD and PET in WDC contain the errors such as spikes and

jumps and gaps for some years. Some available old data of CPS and KHB

for past year are not published. Main progress with magnetic

measurements is associated with INTERMAGNET status of observatories

MGD, KHB and PET after 2011. A significant achievement was obtaining

the digital images of analog magnetograms of MGD (1998-2005, WDC for

STP, Moscow) and PET (1967-2006, under financial support of VarSITI

project). Revision of old magnetic data of IKIR observatories is

necessary because they continue to be important for the scientific

community. The work is carried out in the following areas: (a) the

checking of hourly data, available in WDC, the correction of spikes

and jumps; (b) the filling of gaps in analogue data using the images

of magnetograms; (c) the filling of gaps using the some digital data,

available after 2000. This work was supported by Russian Science Foundation Grant No.14-11-00194.
