Hello, Jonathan,

To keep things in perspective, most motors and other devices that use 
electromagnetism keep most of it inside in order to improve efficiency.

If I recall correctly, the DC magnetism of the earth is 0.5 Gauss.

The best reference I'm aware of is here:
http://home.flash.net/~mrltapes/field-strength-for-partial-erasure.pdf

And if you wish a quick refresher on magnetic units, please see
http://www.irm.umn.edu/hg2m/hg2m_a/hg2m_a.html

I hope that helps.

Cheers,

Richard
