This Compass icon is a responsive icon. This means that it's optimized for four resolutions, from tiny 16x16 until highly detailed 80x80. The style comes from the latest Microsoft Office, which makes it perfect for any Windows applications, in particular, those with ribbon toolbar control. Unlike other icon packs that have merely hundreds of icons, this monster icon pack contains 15,100 icons, all in the same style and quality.
This is a picture of the inside of a compass. It has a small two sided arrow, one side is black and the other is white. There are four small dots in each direction, and it seems to be facing southwest.
