The Compass

The compass is a tool used for map reading and location that displays routes in relation to environmentally important directions. A compass design shows the north, south, east, and west directions. It consists of minor, light magnet stability on a fulcrum point. North is denoted by the symbol “N” outwardly. The magnet does not function on the revolving axis of the earth. It is usually tilted off the center. Declination is the tilting of the earth. Depending on whether a person is on the planet or not, he or she can see the effects of declination. The earth has a diameter of 8000 miles with a weak magnetic field, hence, has little effect on the compass. For this reason, it needs to have a lightweight magnet and frictionless bearing.  Its light weight increases power in the magnetic field of the earth and makes the needle turn

The compass was first invented in China. It was used in the practice of Feng Shui during the Dynasty of Han in the 1st century AD and 2nd century BC. The individuals in China used the compass in giving them direction in life of togetherness and balance with the earth. The modern compass used to date was invented by William Sturgeon. It was originally formed when loadstone magnetized the iron ore. Magnetic variation poses a big challenge as a result of the compass.

The compass rose is an illustration of direction and bearing that is placed on compasses, charts, and maps. It consist of thirty-two points. The gyroscopic compass is used by ships and aircrafts to avoid any interference with navigation by local magnetic device.


In conclusion after the redevelopment of the compass, it offers directions, used as a tool for navigation, and the inner dial taps are used in tapping magnetic frequencies from the earth to the direction an individual is headed to.
