Even in the era of satellite-based positioning systems a compass can still be a useful tool when orienting oneself in a traditional way. Freiberger Geologist’s Compasses are primarily used to measure orientation of geological structures. With the Geologist’s Compass you are able to perform measurements of strike directions, dips and angles of pitch, or dipping angles of areal and linear geological elements.

Sapphire balanced, ground magnetic needle is locked upon button release. Buttun can be locked in a permanent position allowing for a free movement of the compass needle. Lockable inclinometer garantees for inclination measurements of high accuracy. Circular spirit level for leveling. Lateral tubular level for measurements at points of difficult access. Declination and inclination can easily be set to local values. Compass can be used on south hemisphere!

General field-geological work
Special structural-geological, deposit-tectonic, and engineering-geological rockmechanical work
Can be used for route surveying, for the survey of natural and artificial openings above and below ground
For staking out and dimensioning holes
For the transfer of geological data into maps and plans
Rockwork as well as moderate-accuracy surveying
Ground magnetic needle placed on edge.
Permanent locking of the magnetic system - can be released during measurement by depressing the push-button and should be used for shortening the setting time
Easy adjustment of the graduated circle - for each measuring technique and for setting declination values of any magnitude Lockable inclinometer for inclination measurements of high accuracy
Colour coding on circle of altitude and magnetic needle (according to Clar) - unambiguous determination of the direction of dip of geological formations
Circular spirit level for levelling, lateral glass tube for measurement at points of difficult access
Dip measuring plate
Reading of dip angle
Protection for the glass cover
