Processing and interpretation of magnetic data usually require information of total magnetization direction. However, under the effects of remanant magnetization, total magnetization direction is different from induced magnetization direction, which makes data processing and interpretation complexity. In this paper, we present a new method by cross-correlation of magnetic dipole source for determination of magnetization direction from relatively isolated and approximate equiaxial magnetic total field anomaly. This method calculates cross-correlation coefficient between observed magnetic total field anomaly and theoretical magnetic total field anomaly caused by a magnetic dipole source, by using a set of varying parameters of positions and total magnetization direction of dipole source for trial and error. The corresponding magnetization direction of maximum correlation coefficient is regarded as estimated total magnetization direction. Tests on both synthetic data and aeromagnetic data of a mineral exploration in northwestern China indicate this method reliably and effectively estimates the magnetization direction from relatively isolated and approximate equiaxial magnetic total field anomaly.
