Presentation of: GEOPOLE

At the top of the mound of Teil, or mount of the guards in Courgains, two curious instruments await discovery : a fixed chart with its "loxodromic pointer" wich allows us to calculate distance from one point and its situation to this point, and a sun dial, know as "cadran analématic" that one must move and point in order to read the time.
