How to Do Compass Bearings on a Map


 Portable High Accuracy & Stability Metal Outdoor

While portable GPS devices have become more common and prevalent in recent years as the technology has improved and prices have dropped, the ability to use a compass remains an important one. Compasses never run out of batteries and are a dependable means of findings your way when other methods fail. Learning how to use a compass to find your bearings on a map is a good way to practice your orienteering skills.


  • Lay the map on a large, flat, smooth, and stable surface like a picnic table or a clear spot on the ground
  • Turn the compass dial until the "N" is nearest to the front of the compass
  • Position the compass on top of the map so that the front edge points in the same direction as north on the map. All edges of the compass should run parallel with latitude and longitude lines on the map
  • Rotate the map and compass together until the moving red orienting arrow is inside the red outline of an arrow on the compass dial. If you are behind the map and compass, you are now facing north. If you know where you are on the map, you will know in what direction different landmarks are, even if you can't see them

How to Shoot an Azimuth Correctly With a Silva Ranger Compass

 Portable High Accuracy & Stability Metal Outdoor


A Silva Ranger compass is an accurate device used to shoot a directional azimuth. In North America, compasses do not point to the North Pole; they actually point to an area in the Canadian arctic. This means north on a compass and north on a map are rarely the same. A Silva Ranger compass has many features to help you navigate. The compass has a protractor to help obtain bearings from a map and an inclinometer to help determine how steep a grade is.


  • Find the difference between grid and magnetic north (G-M angle), using the legend on your topographical map. Most legends are typically found near the bottom of a map. This angular difference is known as declination and is expressed in degrees
  • Unfold the compass cover so that you will be able to view your target through the site post. The cover should be open approximately 50 to 70 degrees above the base plate. The underside of the cover of the Silva Ranger compass has a mirror and a sighting line on it and the top of the cover has a notched sight post. These will be used together to shoot your azimuth
  • Bring the compass up to your cheek and look through the sight post with one eye to find your target direction. While keeping the compass level, look down to view the compass in the mirror. While looking in the mirror, rotate the orienting needle to align with the red north needle
  • Open your compass up and read the bearing number located below the index pointer line. This number is the direction measured in degrees which you just shot with your compass
  • Adjust the bearing number for declination using the G-M angle from your map. If your magnetic north line is left of the grid north line, you will add the declination amount to your compass bearing number. If the magnetic north line is to the right, you will subtract the declination amount from your compass bearing. This will ensure that you shoot a correct azimuth reading with your Silva Ranger compass
