This is apparent wander. Its value is zero at equator and increases as one moves toward the poles where it is maximum.
The movement of the spin axis of a gyroscope from its original position. Its value is the maximum at the poles and the least at the equator. This is one of the errors or shortfalls in a gyroscope.
