Compass direction - SS2 Geography Lesson Note

Compass direction is a way to describe the direction in which something is located or moving. It is often measured in degrees starting from the north and going clockwise around a full circle (360 degrees).


Cardinal Directions:

Compass directions are typically divided into the four main cardinal points: North (0 degrees), East (90 degrees), South (180 degrees), and West (270 degrees).

Intermediate Directions:

In addition to the cardinal directions, there are intermediate directions, which fall between the cardinal points. For example, northeast is halfway between north and east, at 45 degrees.
