A directional signal is thought to constitute strong evidence for dark
matter detection. Consequently, substantial work on directional dark matter
detection has been pursued and planned by the community. Directionality is
also important for studying the nature of the dark matter once a discovery
has been made. Gaseous detectors are prime candidates for directional
detectors, due to their ability to track recoils and to assign event times.
In this talk, I will summarize current directional detection work, covering
individual works, and within the wider CYGNUS collaboration CYGNUS.
