Abstract

The most successful geophysical tool in the first half of the last century was the torsion balance constructed by Loránd Eötvös. Several tens of thousands of data were measured with this instrument in Hungary. The high accuracy of these data makes them very useful in geological explorations even today. Unfortunately, a significant part of them can only be found in maps. In this paper a method is presented that can be used to transfer the analogue maps into a digital data base. With the help of this method 15 percent of the Hungarian torsion balance measurements has been processed.
