The azimuth error of inclinometer based on gyrocompass changes with different azimuths and incline angles. It has good repeatablility, but it is hard to be described in analytical expression. So a two-dimension look-up table method is proposed to compensate the azimuth error. The testing data in turn-table is used to form the two-dimension data table, which reflects the relationship among the azimuth error, the azimuth and incline angle. And the error characteristic of azimuth error is expressed exactly. Combined with the look-up table method and interpolation method, the azimuth error can be solved exactly and continuously. Turn-table experiments show that this method can increase the measurement accuracy of azimuth greatly, and it has been used for practical orientation in oilfield successfully.
