Why is a Brunton compass backwards?
When you are sighting directly North, the compass needle will point to North. If you turn 90 degrees to your left, you will be sighting due West, but the compass needle rotated 90 degrees to the right, which reads West on a properly reversed compass rose.
Why are east and West reversed on a Brunton compass?
Do you know why, for example, that E (east) and W (west) appear reversed on the compass above? The compass needle is still pointing toward the north but now it lines up with the E on the compass indicating that we’re facing east.
Is East on the left?
Navigation. By convention, the right hand side of a map is East. This convention has developed from the use of a compass, which places North at the top. However, on maps of planets such as Venus and Uranus which rotate retrograde, the left hand side is East.
