Many of us have had the frustrating experience of orienting seismometers or other magnetic instruments in the field. In the past you have had three options: 1) Use a broomstick and eyeball the measurement. 2) Invest in an expensive gyrocompass and train field helpers on its use. 3) Post process the alignment of the instrument in a time consuming process. Now there is a fourth option!
