We analyze the information contained in energy-filtered diffraction patterns measured on core-level edges. By inversion of the sum rules for electron energy loss near edge structures we calculate the reciprocal space distribution of the contribution to the total signal originating from spin moment, orbital moment, spin-orbital interaction, and individual components of magnetic and spin-orbital anisotropy tensors. We demonstrate, in particular, that the diffraction patterns contain information about all three vector components of the spin and orbital magnetic moments.
