Well, that depends on how you want to approach this - what information do
you have available? What was typically done for coils previously was to
construct a dipole approximation using knowledge of the winding geometry.
This is what you find in the ccd files, the 3 first columns indicate the
dipole position in meters (in the coil coordinate system - coil center at
0,0,0 and z towards the head) and the last 3 columns indicate the dipole
moments in x,y and z directions respectively (for a flat coil this would
typically imply that only the third is different from zero).
If you have detailed and somewhat dense measurements of the magnetic field
you can look into:
and the later dipole based approach:
