The original collaborators of the IMAGE project are
Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI)
- is the PI institute of IMAGE. Partly together with SGO, FMI operates TAR, NUR, HAN, MEK, OUJ, PEL, MUO, KIL, IVA, KEV and MAS.
- Sodankylä Geophysical Observatory (Finland)
- participates in the technical service of the northern stations. Since August 1, 1997, Sodankylä is organisationally a separate unit of the University of Oulu.
- Adolf-Schmidt Observatory (Niemegk, Germany)
- of the GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam was previously responsible for most of the routine processing of the data.
- Technical University of Braunschweig (Germany)
- was the original coordinator of the project supplying the instrumentation to six northern stations (PEL, MUO, KIL, MAS, KEV, SOR).
With new stations also new institutes have joined us:
- Tromsø Geophysical Observatory of the University of Tromsø (Norway)
- operates 12 stations in the mainland and Svalbard (AND, BJN, DOB, HOP, KAR, LYR, NAL, NOR, RVK, SOL, SOR, TRO), and also participates in the maintenance of MAS.
- Institute of Geophysics of the Polish Academy of Sciences
- is operating the Hornsund station whose data have been included in the IMAGE data since October 1993.
- Polar Geophysical Institute (Russia)
- at Apatity operates the Lovozero station. A fire destroyed the first station in January 1995, and of the first observation period there are good data available only of October-December, 1994. Lovozero has joined IMAGE again in January 1996.
- Swedish Institute of Space Physics
- provides data of Kiruna from the beginning of 1996, and from Lycksele since July 1998.
- Geological Survey of Sweden
- joined IMAGE in January 1998 with the observatories Abisko and Uppsala.
- University of Tartu and Estonian Meteorological and Hydrological Institute
