What are the two ways in which you can trace the magnetic field pattern of a bar magnet?

The two ways in which the magnetic field pattern of a bar magnet can be traced are as follows:
1. By using iron filings
2. By using compass

Iron filings: In this process, iron filings show the shape of the magnetic field produced by a bar magnet by aligning with magnetic field lines.
Compass: In this process, with the movement of the compass from one position to another, magnetic field lines leave the north pole of the magnet and enter the south pole.
