Read the North end of climometer compass needle to obtain the value of trend. Setup of a modern geological compass after Prof. With traditional compasses there is no record of error caused by poor damping or operator movement.

Compass needle is unlocked with a push button. Modern remote sensing techniques as LiDAR and photogrammetry allow to obtain accurate and dense 3D point clouds.

This compass has the most use by structural geologists, measuring foliation and lineation in cinometer rocksor faults and joints in mining areas. Read either end of the compass needle to obtain the value of strike.

Therefore, please double check your local customs policy carefully before purchase. Thanks in advance for your close cooperation! Clar, University of Vienna, for measuring azimuths and dip angles.


In order to measure the strike, place the side or edge of the compass against the plane of the outcrop. Clinometer Handle Compass is a reproduction of an antique Clinometer compass. It is important to consider such aspects in using a geological compass, for traditional compasses rely on inertia to remove error caused by operator movement.

Therefore, professional use of a digital geological compass requires the recoding of variance in individual measurements. This is based on software that bypasses the inherent inaccuracy of the ‘Heading’ function by recording data from the magnetometers and to the accelerometers, and then computing the orientation of the iPhone using vector algebra. Some countries like Russia, Brazil, or some European countries may take up to 50 days or longer for delivery. The compass has a needle lift mechanism to protect the compass jewel and the pendulous arm when being transported.
