Graduations - The series of degree markings on the azimuth ring used for taking bearings.

Declination -
The difference in degrees between magnetic north (the direction the magnetic needle on a compass points) and true or geographical north (the direction maps are printed toward).

Inclinometer -A feature found on some compasses that allow the compass to measure vertical angles (such as the slope of a hill). A clinometer can also be used as a level.

Azimuth Ring - The rotating part of the compass that holds the damping fluid and the magnetic needle and has degrees engraved around its edge from 1 to 360. Also known as housing.

Baseplate -
The see-through plate of an orienteering compass onto which the compass housing is mounted.

Scale
- The distance between two points on a map as they relate to the distance between those two points on the earth.

Protractor - Sometimes built into a compass, this instrument allows you to determine and measure angles in degrees and is most useful when projecting magnetic lines across your map.
