## How do you calculate bearings and azimuths?

Azimuths and bearings are horizontal angles measured to represent or locate a line with respect to a meridian….Computation of Azimuths and Bearing.

Quadrant | Bearing to Azimuth Conversion |
---|---|

I (NE) | Bearing = Azimuth |

II(SE) | Bearing = 1800 – Azimuth |

III(SW) | Bearing = Azimuth – 1800 |

IV (NW) | Bearing = 360 – Azimuth |

**How do you calculate azimuth in Excel?**

Excel formula =atan2(x_num;y_num) would return the the “m” gradient of y=mx+b function (counterclockwise, from 0→X direction). The azimuth is actually clockwise, from 0→Y direction, so the formula should be =[PI()/2]-[atan2(x_num;y_num)] or simply with X,Y swapped =atan2(y_num;x_num).

**How do you solve bearings in surveying?**

Subtract the smaller bearing from the greater one. The difference will give the interior angle if it is less than 180°. But if the difference exceeds 180°, It will be exterior angle. Then obtain the interior angle by subtracting the difference from 360°.

### How do I find the bearing between two coordinates in Excel?

The modern era has made calculating bearings between two coordinates convenient with Excel.

- Start Excel, and enter the following text into the following cells: Video of the Day.
- Click on cell B2, then enter “LatB” in the drop-down to the left of the formula bar.
- Click on cell A3 and enter the word “Bearing.”

**How to convert azimuths to bearings?**

Converting Azimuths to Bearings or Vice Versa. Suppose you want to convert an azimuth of 135 to the corresponding bearing. This azimuth is greater than 90 but less than 180; therefore, the line lies in the southeast quadrant. As shown in figure 13-3, the bearing angles are always measured from the north and south ends of thereference meridian.

**How to convert bearing to azimuth?**

Using it is pretty simple: Place the center over the point on the map you’re using to determine which azimuth you’re going to travel on, square the protractor to the map’s grid, place a small tick mark in the center of the protractor (they usually have a hole for that purpose), and use some sort of straight edge to line up the center point and the azimuth (use the INNER RING of degrees, not the outer ring), place a tick mark, move the protractor out of the way, and draw a straight line
