A goniometer is an instrument that either measures an angle or allows an object to be rotated to a precise angular position. The term goniometry is derived from two Greek words, gōnia, meaning angle, and metron, meaning measure. ==Applications== ===Communications=== The Belini-Tosi goniometer was a type of radio direction finder that was widely u...Found on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goniometer

A goniometer is often included in analog audio equipment to display a Lissajous figure which shows the amount of stereo (that is, phase differences) in a dual-channel signal. It allows the sound technician to adjust for optimal stereo and determine the makeup of errors such as an inverted signal. Many goniometers also provide a VU o...Found on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goniometer_(audio)

A goniometer is an instrument for measuring solid angles, and is used in crystallography. The reflecting goniometer is an instrument of this kind for measuring the angles of crystals by determining through what angular space the crystal must be turned so that two rays reflected from two surfaces successively shall have the same direction.
