Caption: Compass and map. The compass has a free-swinging magnetic needle (red/white) pointing to a dial. The dial is graduated in degrees and shows the cardinal points: north, south, east and west. The needle aligns itself with the local lines of magnetic force to indicate the direction of the north and south magnetic poles. The compass can be used with a map to orient, take bearings and navigate.
