Before magnetic compasses became available in the 13th century, seafaring captains used a diagram called a wind rose to gauge the direction of the prevailing breezes. With the advent of the compass, this diagram evolved into the compass rose, highlighting the cardinal directions and often including as many as 32 "points" or directional arrows in all. When printed onto nautical charts, the compass rose provided the directional reference needed to set accurate courses. This enabled the early transatlantic explorers to sail with confidence. The compass rose in this kit includes points for 16 directions. North, east, south, and west are indicated by the main red points, while the intermediate points are shown with smaller points of other colors.
