Boxing the compass is the action of naming all thirty-two clockwise points of the compass in order. The eight principal winds, eight half-winds and sixteen quarter winds together yield a 32-wind compass rose, with each compass direction point at 11.25° angle from the next.
A minute of arc is a unit of angular measurement that is equal to one sixtieth (1⁄60) of one degree. Since one degree is defined as one three hundred and sixtieth (1⁄360) of a rotation, one minute of arc is 1⁄21600 of a rotation.
