Abstract: The aim of this study is to establish the method to derive correct vector magnetic fields from imaging polarimetry data taken with the Solar Flare Telescope of the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan. We compared our imaging polarimetry data taken during 2006 December with the spectro-polarimetry data taken with the Hinode Solar Optical Telescope. While the polarization signals obtained with the two instruments are basically consistent to each other, we found some systematic differences between them, particularly in transverse magnetic field vectors.
