      Then there is the system that one no longer sees which had the form "N 45 
    E", "S 20 W" etc. for which I can't see any advantages but presumably they 
    some at sometime.
      In reference to that system that I have not cut from my reply, correct me if 
    I'm wrong, but I believe that plays a roll in celestial navigation 
    calculations, using electronic calculators. That description of direction is 
    used in calculating the quadrant that a bodies azimuth is in, I believe.
