The geographical north pole
The direction of the earth's actual North Pole. See magnetic north.
() the geographic North Pole where all the longitude lines meet; indicated by the star symbol on a map
Is the northern location of the earth's axis of rotation and is the basis for lines of latitude and longitude.
True north is the top of the world, where all lines of longitude converge. Magnetic north, the location our compasses point to, lies several hundred miles to the south of true north at a location in Canada.

(see also: magnetic north) the direction, along the surface of the Earth, toward the point where Earth's imaginary axis of rotation intersects Earth's surface in the northern hemisphere.
The point used by mapmakers in indicating direction. See Magnetic north.
The direction of the North Pole from your current position. Magnetic compasses are slightly incorrect due to effects of the Earth's magnetic field. GPS units correct for magnetic influences.
The geographic North Pole, from which all meridians radiate, gives the direction of True North anywhere on Earth.
the direction from any point on the earth's surface toward the geographic North Pole
The direction to the geographic North Pole. It is different from Magnetic North, by the value of the Mag. Var.
The direction which points to the North Pole.
Geographic north, determined by the earth’s axis. True north is one of the measurements used to align satellite antennas with the satellites. Magnetic north is determined by the earth’s magnetic poles.
The geographic north of the globe and represented on the Lat/Long grid by the lines of longitude or meridians.
The direction of the north pole from your current position. Magnetic compasses indicate north differently due to the variation between true north and magnetic north. A GPS receiver can display headings referenced to true north or magnetic north.
The direction of the north pole from your current position. The north pole is not the magnetic north. The variation between true north and magnetic north is called declination. GPS receiver can display headings referenced to true north or magnetic north. Back to the top of the page...
