    Different Kinds of Compasses & Their Uses

    Military Compass

    When you plan a hiking or backpacking trip, a compass is a wise tool to pack. It can literally be a lifesaver if you get lost. A compass tells you whether you are headed north, south, east or west. However, people may confuse the direction of north on a compass. The north direction on a compass actually points to the magnetic north that is in northern Canada. The north direction on a compass does not refer to the North Pole at the top of earth.

    How to Use a Compass:

    Geological Compass

    Does your life lack direction? Learn to read a compass properly and you'll always know which way to go.

    Lensatic Compass

    • The lensatic compass, or engineer's compass, is a type of navigational device. The main components of lensatic compasses are the base, cover and lens. The cover shields a floating dial. This type of compass has two luminous sighting slots, a sighting wire and dots for night navigating. The body of the compass contains the floating dial and an arrow that can point to north, south, east and west. You read the compass through the lens. The lens holds the rear-sight slot, which works with the front-sight slot. In addition, the rear-sight locks and secures the dial when the device closes

    Pocket Compasses

    • Some people may refer to a pocket compass as a needle compass. A pocket compass has a magnetic needle suspended over a card divided into 360 equal degrees. The needle identifies the cardinal compass points at 0 degrees, 90 degrees, 180 degrees and 270 degrees to denote north, east, south and west. In addition, a small arrow denotes the intercardinal points northeast, southeast, southwest and northwest. As you pivot the compass, the needle points to the direction

    Prismatic Compass

    • A prismatic compass is handheld and includes a glass prism sighting system. The top has a line that aligns objects for sighting. In addition, the compass card turns in the base. You read the compass card when it stops through the glass prism

    Orienteering Compass

    • An orienteering compass is also called a baseplate compass. This type of compass has been around since the 1930s and has a see-through plastic face and base plate. The compass includes a rectangle base and a 360-degree dial with a magnetic suspended needle inside clear liquid. As the dial turns, you read the direction

    Thumb Compass

    • A thumb compass is a base plate compass that you control with one hand. You wrap the compass around your thumb. This allows you to hold a paper map and the compass with one hand and in one spot. This type of compass is frequently used for regaining and orienteering

    How to Use a Compass:

    Precision Compas

    Does your life lack direction? Learn to read a compass properly and you'll always know which way to go.

    Instructions:

    Xin Xiang Guang Xue Multifunctional Distance Measuring Precise Military Geological Compass

    • Hold the base plate compass flat in front of your chest so that the compass needle floats freely and points to magnetic north. (The only thing a compass needle can do is point to magnetic north
    • Rotate the entire compass housing until the needle sits within the orienting arrow stenciled onto the base of the compass housing. (Usually the orienting arrow is red.) The zero degree mark on the compass housing and the north end of the needle should be aligned - they now point to magnetic north
    • Keep the orienting arrow and the compass needle pointing north. Twist the base plate until the direction-of-travel line points exactly at the distant landmark you wish to move toward. Double-check to make sure everything is still properly aligned
    • Note the exact number of degrees marked on the compass dial where the direction-of-travel line intersects the compass dial. That number of degrees is the direction to the distant landmark

    How to Use a Military Compass:

    Military Compass

    The military lensatic compass is the standard issue navigational tool for overland travel by members of the military when operating on land. The compass is made up of a base with a ruler on the left side to be used in measuring distances on a map. The cover (with a vertical slot visible when opened) has a thin metal wire running vertically that is used to sight on distant objects when walking. The compass section is comprised of a floating dial with degrees from North (360), clockwise to East (90) to South (180) to West (270) printed around the circumference of the dial. The clear cover over the floating dial has a luminous line that can be matched up to the degree/direction that you plan to move towards. This direction is referred to as an azimuth.

    Instructions:

    • Understand the terms. An azimuth is a mathematical term denoting the direction in which you are traveling. The opposite direction is referred to as a back azimuth. To find your azimuth, you need a map with grid lines (preferably a 1:50,000 scale), protractor (clear, flat tool with degrees marked on its edge to help plot courses on a map) and your compass
    • Lay the map out flat on a table or the ground and find the legend which will show you where North is denoted on the map. This arrow is not pointing towards actual North, it is just showing you where North is with respect to the map. With your compass you will be able to find out which way is true North
    • Now, find out where you are on the map. You can use surrounding land formations or masses (mountains, forests or rivers) to try and determine where you are in relation to the map. Draw a line from where you are to where you want to go
    • Place the protractor on the map so the top of the protractor is pointing towards North on the map. Place the center of the protractor where the drawn line crosses a vertical line on the map. Where the drawn line meets the edge of the protractor is a degree number. This is your azimuth
    • Let's say that your line crosses the 270-degree point on the protractor. If you lay your compass on the map (lined up with north on the map), and look at where the needle is facing north you will know which direction north is. Now you need to orient (turn) the map to the actual north heading
    • Now both your compass and your map are oriented to the North. Take the 270 degree measurement from the protractor and rotate the compass so the luminous line is over the 270-degree mark on the floating dial. Now turn the dial so the line on the clear cover is over the north-pointing arrow on the floating dial. Keep that set there so you will always know which way is north if you get lost as you are moving
    • Your direction (270) is set by the red luminous dial. That is the line you want to make sure stays over the 270 so you will continue to move in the right direction
    • To help in maintaining your direction, every one hundred feet or so, you should stop and use the metal sighting strip to guide you towards a fixed object (such as a tree, hill or rock formation). This will ensure you are maintaining the proper direction. Once you are at the fixed object, look at your compass again, making sure you are still moving in the right direction, find another object and repeat
    • Know how to return. When you get to your location and want to return to where you started, you simply use a back azimuth. To find your back azimuth, add 180 degrees to your previous azimuth (if it is less than 180 degrees) or subtract 180 degrees if the azimuth was more than 180 degrees. Follow this new azimuth back to your previous location
    • Care should be taken when handling a military compass. Try to keep from using it around large metal objects and anything that is magnetic. This will cause a false North reading and could cause you to get lost. Keep the military compass in a protective case so it doesn't get dirty or the casing over the floating dial doesn't crack
