MAGDAS (Magnetic Data Acquisition System) is a magnetometer initiated by Kyushu University used to study space weather. The latest of real-time Magnetic Data Acquisition System of Circum-pan Pacific Magnetometer Network was successfully installed at University Malaysia Sabah (UMS) Sabah, Malaysia by International Center for Space Weather Science and Education, ICSWSE, Kyushu University, Japan. This is the second magnetometer under MAGDAS after Langkawi station (LKW) (geographic latitude and longitude: 6.30º, 99.78º and geomagnetic latitude and longitude: -2.32º, 171.29º). This paper reports on first analysis of geomagnetic observation of MAGDAS at Sabah station. The geomagnetic components: H, D, Z and total F obtained from MAGDAS’s magnetometer are presented. The diurnal variation of geomagnetic elements during initial measurement at Sabah indicates a good variation pattern. The validation of amplitude variation with the nearest station also significantly relative.
