Interpreting Magnetometer Data

I'm trying to build an app using the BlackBerry's Magentometer but I don't quite understand how to interpret the data. My question is:

1. Do the vector components returned by MagnetometerData.getMagnetometerData() use the device coordinate system or do they use the world coordinate system?

2. If they use the device coordinate system, how would I remap the axes so that it uses the world coordinate system?

 

Thanks in advance.
