Abstract. Ultra-high energy cosmic rays (UHECR) are deflected by magnetic fields during their propagation. Different theoretical parameterizations of the Galactic magnetic field are examined using anumerical tool which simulates their propagation through models of these fields. We constrain the possible parameter space of the models by comparing data on UHECR obtained with the Pierre Auger Observatory with the results of the simulations.
