Northerns and Easterns are reference points on a map reference system used on site maps to identify the position of any feature.

By breaking down the site map into smaller and smaller squares quoting letters and then numbers.

These squares are divided into smaller squares by grid lines representing a certain distance spacing each numbered 0 - 9, from the south-west corner in an easterly and northerly direction. You can thus identify a certain grid square by quoting two grid letters and the eastings and northings; for example, TQ 6 3.
