axis/pole orientation
#1
Along which axis and in which direction (positive/negative) are the magnetic poles represented?

I would assume either y or z in the positive direction to be polar North, if there is a convention for this, I've forgotten it.
--I did see the axis orientation in relation to the phone screen where +y points to the top, +x points right, and +z is orthogonal to its surface.

Thank you
