Interesting phrasing problem. I should think "orientation" would be the proper rendering of "dirección," I am hard put to find "intersection lineation" and "orientation" or "oriented" together, when searching Google, so I guess you need to stay with "direction," since It always seems to be some other feature that has an orientation. I did find one example where orientation appears where your "sigue" occurs" and "direction collocated with the "intersection lineation":

direction of the intersection lineation


Explanation:
OR:
orientation of the intersection lineation


FIELD: GEOLOGY, STRUCTURAL GEOLOGY

intersection lineation
A lineation created by the intersection of two penetrative planar elements such as bedding and foliation.

Intersection lineation= lines created by the intersection of planes e.g. bedding and cleavage

AS IN:
Cleavage-Cleavage intersection intersection lineation which plots a symbol showing the plunge and plunge direction of the intersection lineation defined by the foliation from the EVENT 1 menu and the foliation from the EVENT 2 menu, at the position selected by mouse.
