Orientation is relevant in line implantations and point implantations with markers that can indicate direction (e.g. the vertical pipe, arrow). Orientation can also be used to rotate area implantations.

Orientation is most useful for communicating information that is naturally perceived as having the dimension of direction, e.g. wind, cardinal direction, increases vs. decreases.

Orientation has important applications in mapping.
