Hey All:

I initially used the term magnetic declination in an early post on the
subject.  Someone corrected my usage to "deviation".  The corrector
was wrong as it related to what I was describing.

On US Coast and Geodetic Survey maps, some call topo maps, the word
declination is used to define or indicate the difference between true
North and magnetic North.

I stand by my post.

But, I have enjoyed all this, as others have already stated.
