  • degrees (number) the degrees to convert to point (only valid if >= 0 or <= 360)

  • opts (object) options hash [optional]

    • depth (integer) the depth of search it can be a value between 0 and 3.

    With value 0, it only returns the 4 main compass points (N, E, S, W).

    With value 1 returns the main 8 compass points (N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW).

    With value 2 returns the main 16 compass points (N, NNE, NE, ENE, E, ESE, SE, SSE, S, SSW, SW, WSW, W, WNW, NW, NNW).

    With value 3 returns the 32 points of the compass.

    With value 4 returns the 64 points of the compass.

    With value 5 returns the 128 points of the compass.

    Any other value will return undefined.
