Classic geological compasses

In general, geological compasses that are not just for practical usage for direction finding and navigation (especially in remote areas), also have the ability to measure strike and dip of bedding surfaces and/or metamorphic foliation planes. Structural geologists (i.e., those concerned with geometry and the pattern of relative movement) also have a need to measure the plunge and plunge direction of lineation’s.
