Cardinal directions
The four main points of a compass north, south, east, and west are the cardinal directions. They are also known by their first letters: N,S,E, and W. The directions on the compass that are in between the cardinal points are called northeast, southeast, southwest, and northwest. These are called intermediate directions.
