Cardinal direction - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (662 words)
In mathematics, cardinal directions or cardinal points are the four principal directions or points of the compass in a plane.
An ordinal or intermediate direction is one of the four compass directions located halfway between the cardinal directions: northeast, southeast, southwest, and northwest.
Each direction is often identified with a color, and geographical or ethnic terms may contain the name of the color instead of the name of the corresponding direction [1] [2].
