## How do you convert degrees to compass direction?

To convert degrees to compass directions, I first divide the compass into 16 sectors of 22.5 degrees each. The sectors are like slices of pie, centered on the compass points. Tip: If you would like to use eight sectors instead of 16, with a shorter lookup table, divide by 45 degrees instead of 22.5 degrees.

## How do you convert wind direction to degrees?

The truth is that wind direction can also be presented in azimuth degrees, i.e., in a numerical measure that moves around the Rose of the Winds in a clockwise circle from 0 degrees (N) to 360 degrees (N). So, if north represents 0 degrees, then east is 90 degrees, south is 180 degrees, and west sits at 270 degrees.

What direction is 240 degrees on a compass?

Chinese compass points

Point Ordinal Name Angle

### What wind direction is 270 degrees?

the west
Wind direction is typically reported in degrees, and describes the direction from which the wind emanates. A direction of 0 degrees is due North on a compass, and 180 degrees is due South. A direction of 270 degrees would indicate a wind blowing in from the west.

### What direction is 225 degrees?

Southwest
If you want to use degrees instead, a Southwest wind direction equals 225 degrees.

How do you read wind direction compass?

The more directions on a compass or wind rose we have, the more accurately we can read where the wind is blowing FROM (and to), so these eight directions were further divided, up to 16: north-northeast (NNE), east-northeast (ENE), east-southeast (ESE), south-southeast (SSE), south-southwest (SSW), west-southwest (WSW).

## What is wind direction SSW?

South-Southwest
SSW = South-Southwest (192-213 degrees)

## What degree is Ene?

ENE = East-Northeast (057-078 degrees) E = East (079-101 degrees) ESE = East-Southeast (102-123 degrees) SE = Southeast (124-146 degrees)

What are the degrees of a compass?

Degrees To Compass Designation. Valid compass entries are numeric degree designations from 0 degrees to 360 degrees (0 and 360 are the same direction, North.) The responses will be general directions such as North, South, East South East and similar. The deviation from general directions is about 22.5 degrees.

### How do you determine the general direction of a compass?

The purpose of this applet is to determine the GENERAL compass directional indicator from an entry of degrees. Valid compass entries are numeric degree designations from 0 degrees to 360 degrees (0 and 360 are the same direction, North.) The responses will be general directions such as North, South, East South East and similar.

### What are the degrees of wind direction?

So, if north represents 0 degrees, then east is 90 degrees, south is 180 degrees, and west sits at 270 degrees. Easy, isn’t it? Check out the 32 cardinal points, their corresponding abbreviations, and degrees: Discover six (un)orthodox methods for checking wind direction.

What is the degree of deviation from general directions?

Valid compass entries are numeric degree designations from 0 degrees to 360 degrees (0 and 360 are the same direction, North.) The responses will be general directions such as North, South, East South East and similar. The deviation from general directions is about 22.5 degrees. Updated 8.15.11
