What is the definition of bearing?
The angular distance between two terrestrial points, measured in a clockwise direction with reference to North or South and some angular deflection to the East or West. For example, a point that is halfway between South and East from your current position will have a bearing of “South 45° East”. This means that a bearing will always have an angle less than 90°. Despite being sometimes interchanged with azimuth, note there is a difference between these two terms.
