Compass Rose / Windrose

Untitled Document

A compass rose, sometimes called a Windrose, or Rose of the Winds, is a figure on a compass, map, nautical chart or monument used to display the orientation of the cardinal directions—North, East, South and West—and their intermediate points.
It is also the term for the graduated markings found on the traditional magnetic compass.
Today, the idea of a compass rose is found on, or featured in, almost all navigation systems, including nautical charts, non-directional beacons (NDB), VHF omnidirectional range (VOR) systems, global-positioning systems (GPS), and similar equipment and devices.
