Building a Handheld Digital Compass

I have decided to build a handheld digital compass for orienteering, with altitude and temperature functions. I haven't used a compass in decades, and some folks have never used one, so I thought I'd post a link to a great tutorial describing the parts of a compass, and how it's used. Enjoy!
