Abstract: The Global Paleomagnetic Database (GPMDB), now updated to 1992, contains about 7000 paleomagnetic data, which are fundamental tools to define regional and global geodynamic models. A software developed at the Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica Allows the selection of data on the basis of space, time, and quality. Six quality classes have been proposed. The African and European Apparent Polar Wander Paths (APWPs) have been computed and the role of the statistical uncertainties is discussed. Some examples from the Tethys Belt have been chosen to demonstrate the effect of the quality filtering in geodynamic studies.
