Azimuth

Used in aeronautics usually with respect to instruments to denote angular displacement in a horizontal plane. In astronomical navigation, azimuth is the true bearing of the star under observation from the North point on the horizon as seen by the observer.

Azimuth

is an angular measurement of an object's orientation along the horizon of the observer, relative to the direction of true north. When combined with the altitude above the horizon, it defines an object's current position in the spherical coordinate system.

Azimuth

The angle between true north and the projection of a surface normal to the horizontal plane, measured clockwise from the north. As applied to a Photovoltaic array, 180 degrees azimuth means the array faces south.

Azimuth

A surveying term that references the angle measured clockwise from any meridian (the established line of reference). The bearing is used to designate direction. The bearing of a line is the acute horizontal angle between the meridian and the line.

azimuth

The angular distance to the foot of the vertical circle through a celestial body, measured from north around the observer`s horizon. Azimuth is 0° for an object due north, 90° due east, 180° due south, and 270° due west. It is specified together with altitude or, occasionally, zenith...

Azimuth

==Mapping== There are a wide variety of azimuthal map projections. They all have the property that directions (the azimuths) from a central point are preserved. Some navigation systems use south as the reference plane. However, any direction can serve as the plane of reference, as long as it is clearly defined for everyone using that system. ==Ast...
