    That's interesting. Those triangle lines do seem to connect somehow to the North Pole and to points on the globe. (I need to look at it again to see, I haven't looked at it in a while.) And there's the compass rose in the background to show what's N S E W.

    That sort of reminds me of something I've read that sailors used for celestial navigation--the "Celestial Triangle". It's based on geometry. I'll have to look it up, because I forget what it involves. The sailors had to locate with their compass and sextant two important points--and using those two points they were then able to pinpoint the third point on the triangle, and the third point showed them the way to steer. This sounds like the same general principle--using two given points to find the third point of a triangle.
