    • Compass Rose
      A compass rose is a design on a map that shows directions. It shows north, south, east, west, northeast, northwest, southeast, and southwest. On the compass rose, only north is filled in. Fill in the rest of the directions on the compass rose, using the standard abbreviations:
      • N=North,
      • S=South,
      • E=East,
      • W=West,
      • NE=Northeast,
      • NW=Northwest,
      • SE=Southeast,
      • SW=Southwest.
      When north is at the top of the compass rose (as it often is), south is at the bottom, east is on the right, and west is on the left. Northeast is between north and east, northwest is between north and west, southeast is between south and east, and southwest is between south and west.
