Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2it is a common notion in other words, if you made a map, you could orient it any way you like. But notice almost every map you use has north on the top. In other words, it is "agreed convention" that we assume everybody uses. I guess they like the term "common notion" but "assumed convention" seems clearer (to me)
