True North

True North is a personal compass that points to the places you care about.

The compass wheel spins to north, while the pointer indicates the direction. Distance as well as walking time is given, in case that desire should ever strike you.

Created by Haiyan Zhang, in collaboration with Neil Churcher. Please email your feedback & suggestions.
