The compass must be twisted so that the base of the compass becomes horizontal, as accomplished using the spirit level incorporated in it. Measurements made by smartphone geological compasses can potentially be susceptible to noise, mainly due to vibration or rapid hand movement.

Hinged cover has a graduated compss operation. Scale rides on a sapphire jeweled bearing and is liquid damped. It is not designed to sight on a distant object and measure the slope to that object. Modern remote sensing techniques as LiDAR and photogrammetry allow to obtain accurate and dense 3D point clouds. The Handle Compass gets its name from its “handle” shaped sight, which actually serves two purpose as With the compass compas, an object can be viewed through the peep sights to determine its magnetic heading.


Since very many measurements can be made in a few seconds, statistical analysis can be applied. Nature of Business Authorized Retail Dealer. Values can be read directly to one degree or one percent and estimated to 10 min.
