2016-01-16 19:24 The parameters call for a geologic compass and I'm just trying to clarify what is meant by geologic compass. Transit compass or bearing compass for maps?

Any compass that allows to take strike, dip, plunge, and trend measurements will be good. Therefore, students need a compass that, on top of indicating the magnetic North, also has a clinometer and allows sighting distant landmarks.

All Silva compasses in the "Ranger" series provide a cheaper and good alternative to the much more expensive Brunton compass.
