Question: Are azimuth and bearing the same?

A bearing is an angle less than 90° within a quadrant defined by the cardinal directions. An azimuth is an angle between 0° and 360° measured clockwise from North. South 45° East and 135° are the same direction expressed as a bearing and as an azimuth.

How do you convert bearings?

To convert angle of bearing to degrees of a standard angle, subtract the bearing angle from 90°. If you end up with a negative answer, add 360°, and if your answer is greater than 360°, subtract 360° from it. For a bearing angle of 180°, the standard angle would be 270°.
