The Compass Rose

What is it for? Originally used to measure wind direction
Now it is commonly used to indicate Geographic direction on maps

It orients the map so you know “which way is up”…

It shows the “Cardinal Directions”

And the “Ordinal Directions”
NW NE SE SW

The contemporary compass rose appears as two rings, one smaller and set inside the other. The outside ring denotes true cardinal directions while the smaller inside ring denotes magnetic cardinal directions.

“True North” refers to the geographical location of the North Pole

Magnetic North is the place to which all magnetic compasses point

Means naming all 32 points on the rose
“Boxing the Compass”… Means naming all 32 points on the rose
