What 30 degrees east of south means?
Our modern compasses are graduated in degrees, where there are 360 degrees in a circle. "South" can be a direction; as a compass direction, it means "180 degrees". A compass direction of "east" is 90 degrees. So, "30 degrees east of south" is the direction that we would normally refer to as a compass reading of 150 degrees.
