The contact method is done in such a way that the edge of the compass clinometers is placed on the surface of the joints whilst the compass is held horizontal and parallel to the strike, the value of the strike is read by rotating clinometers till it reads zero dip while the standing/kneeling down method entails standing over the surface with the compass opened and held parallel at waist height; this technique is most suitable on large uneven planes of relatively low dip while using this method, the azimuth technique of reading the strike was adopted which involved the non-rotation of the clinometers but the reading of the value of the compass and subtracting it from 3600.
