  In calculations based on particle tracking in 3D magnetic field maps alignment of the components of a magnetic lattice is essential to obtain desired properties of beam optics. In this contribution we propose a method to control and correct misalignments during the process of the beam optics design. These misalignments would result from overlapping fringe fields of different field maps. The 3D field maps are obtained from the software for electromagnetic calculations OPERA. The full 3D map is saved in the tracking coordinate system and a ROOT (An Object Oriented Data Analysis Framework) ntuple is then created for analysis. The trajectory of the reference particle is calculated by means of OPAL - open source code developed at the Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI). The transverse magnetic field profiles allow possible misalignments to be precisely determined and the corresponding corrections to be calculated. Moreover, the multipole content in discrete locations along the lattice can be controlled by performing a polynomial fit, which calculates the magnetic field harmonics with respect to the reference track. This method was used at PSI for a design of a model of the magnetic lattice for a superconducting gantry for proton therapy with a large momentum acceptance.
