## Quadrants

Since the map is a circle centered at 0,0 it is convenient to split it in four quadrants:

- -,- or Northwestern quadrant
- +,- or Northeastern quadrant
- -,+ or Southwestern quadrant
- +,+ or Southeastern quadrant

The + and - signs refer to the sign of the coordinates in each quadrant: for example, the X,Z coordinates -123,4567 would be in the -,+ quadrant.

While this method does not work well for places close to 0,0 or the horizontal/vertical axes, it is easy to understand and has been in use for years.

## Semicircles

Similar to the Hemispheres of Earth, Semicircles can be used to refer to two adjacent quadrants combined. For example, the Western Semicircle refers to the -,- and -,+ quadrants.
