Great question. The angle has no significance. Cartographers (chart makers) angle the teardrop to keep the chart uncluttered. Thanks for your comment!

Is there any significance to the angle of the teardrop? Or, is it just angled into an area that isn't too 'busy' on the map.... More videos like this one would be very helpful.
