    Ed Kitchin is indeed right that quadrantal bearings are still used. The
    famous ABC tables
    for azimuth are designed to give a quadrantal result. The method is
    available for students
    using the electronic calculator. The result in quadrantal form can be
    rapidly changed to
    360� notation for plotting purposes. It is especially useful if the body you
    are observing
    is near the Prime Vertical any doubt as to whether it is North or South
    quadrant is quickly
    sorted out by the method.
