One of the most important problems for the magnetic interpretation is estimating the shape and depth of a buried structure. In this study, the various magnetic anomalies have been interpreted using the method which is develop for determination to depth and shape of a buried structure from magnetic data. The method is similar to Euler deconvolution but it solves for shape and depth independently. The method involves using a relationship between the shape factor, with the depth to the source, and a combination of observations at symmetric points with respect to the coordinate of the source center with a free parameter (graticule spacing). For a fixed free parameter, the depth is determined for each shape factor. The computed depths are plotted against the shape factor. The shape and depth of the buried structure is determine at the intersection of the parametric curves. Sphere and dike are the shape of the structure used in this study. This methos is applied to theoretical magnetic models and Yozgat Sarıkaya Magnetic Anomaly Profile
