Standing direction of a building built in Revit

Dear Officer,

I am using Revit Architecture 2013 to build a building. I would like to know whether Revit Architecture can control the standing direction of the building? And where can I change the standing direction and how the cartestian coordinate of the geometry building is related with the standing direction? When I export the gbXML file from Revit Architecture, what information in the XML file can indicate the standing direction of each wall? 


Are they related with the arranged name of each surface? For example, the names, "N-1-E-W-1", and  "W-1-E-W-2"?

By "standing direction" I assume you mean orientation to North?


Revit has both True North and Project North.


Do a search under Project Location.
