Luopan (罗盘) is a Chinese compass specifically designed for fengshui use. Compared to a Western compass, the Luopan magnetic needle is south pointing instead of north pointing. It has a square base and a round rotating disc, with the magnetic needle mounted at the centre. The square base represents Earth while the round disc represents Heaven. This is because the Chinese traditionally believed that people live on a stationary flat land with the sky or heaven circulating above them.
Luopan are categorised into three basic types. The San He (三合) luopan, San Yuen (三元) luopan and the Zong He (综合) Luopan. The San He (三合) luopan can be easily recognized by the three rings of the 24 mountains (二十四山), offset from each other by 7.5 degrees. These are the Earth ring, Heaven ring and the Man ring. Each of these rings has its own specific usage. It also has other rings besides these 3 main 24 mountain rings for various formulae. The San Yuen (三元) luopan is characterised by having rings of the 64 hexagrams in both Chinese characters or hexagrams symbols. The third type is a combination of the San He and San Yuen luopan. Is has 3 rings of 24 mountains as well as rings of hexagrams. Some fengshui masters designed their own Luopan with the rings of formulae that they use often in their practice.
Beginner practitioners of fengshui sometimes opt to use a normal camping compass for fengshui audit. For better result, a high precision sighting compass such as the SUNNTO KB-14 is recommended. They are of high built quality and it can be used to measure up to a difference of 0.5 degree. A mounting screw hole at the bottom also allows it to be mounted on a normal camera tripod. Certain models are specially calibrated for use in certain parts of the world only to compensate for different magnetic declination. For professionals, a special laser sighting device mounted on a customised luopan are sometimes used. They are expensive and can cost up to SGD 2,000.00
