Two techniques are described for characterizing the magnetic properties of the edges in long, straight magnetic stripes, using vector magnetometry. The critical transverse field at which the edge magnetization saturates is determined by measuring hysteresis loops as a function of angle. We estimate the angular dispersion in the stripe edges by measuring the angular width of the transition from one stability direction to the other.
