First, let's discuss the importance of each direction in vastu shastra. Then we will discuss in detail how to use the digital compass app to determine the correct sixteen directions with marking.

Importance of directions :

The foundation of vastu shastra stood on directions and its influences. Every direction has its effect on all living creatures of the earth. Vastu shastra is the subject where consequences of direction are taken deeply to analyze the impact on earthly beings. In a single word, vastu shastra is the science of directions. There are eight main directions references found in ancient vastu manuscript documents. But in "Viswakarma Prakakash," slokas indicate the presence of 16 directions. First, we will discuss eight conventional dimensions.

Among the eight directions, North, East, south, and west are the cardinal direction. There is another zone between two cardinal directions, i.e., Northeast, Southeast, Southwest & Northwest. These are known as inter-cardinal. In the ancient Vastu manuscript, all eight directions are ruled by each deity or Dikpalas. Each dikpalas has its own characteristics, and it is the guardian of that particular directions

That means between north and Northeast, and another area is named North of North-East (NNE).
