Within the capsule is a gravity-driven clinometer needle ranging from 0° to 90° either way, which one can use to determine height or slope angles. For geoscientists, it helps determine the dip and strike of a plane of rock and provides this in increments of 2°. The luminescent markings allow use in low light conditions and a magnifier on the base plate allows users to read small text on maps.
