During a diploma thesis at the Munich Technical University in 1977, the licensor has discovered a fundamental error on the signage: the absence of indication of cardinal points, consequently the unnatural requirement of transfers within the left brain hemisphere. Based on unnumberable surveys and interviews in two continents, the licensor has developed a range of orientation methodes for car drivers, pedestrians, passengers, visitors of exhibitions, shopping centers, buildings, parks etc. These methodes require merely the knowledge of one or more master directions and the natural position indication on target locations and on intermediary points as crossings, bus stops, etc. As the system uses the imagination power of the user, it requires considerably less signage and simplifies the cartography.


The developed system is a comprehensive collection of intellectual works composed by symbols, pictograms, identification numbers and letters, brand names, learning concepts, markings, signage, labelling, descriptions, methodes, electronic/non-electronic displays, algorithms etc., which are specified in attachment according the special requirements of the licensee.


The system is a collection of intellectual works that allow several commercially usable applications, also in electronics, such as:


- Honestly®, stepless tariff system with special measures against clandestinity and falsification,

- display of natural position indications StatusQuo© on navigation devices, mobile phones, watches etc.

- NorthSound©, OrientSound© acoustic pointers in shopping centers, busses, road entrances etc. for persons with / without visual handicaps

- north light©  solar driven light as north pointer for signage on roads and highways  

- Natural Cartography© acc. to www.volksnav.com/map

- Natural World Co-ordinates / City Codes acc. to www.watchrose.com



The technical parts of the system, the designs and the utility models have been registred at the Deutsches Patentamt under the codes  296 09 878.7, 196 43139.5-35, 197 16097.2, 299 04 418.1, 498 12 675.7, 499 07103.4, 202 06 031.4 and 203 17 279.5. Due to the wide range of the agreement subject, the system also has copyright protections similar to franchising agreements. The brand name of the whole system is Munich Orientation Convention.
