## How do you read bearing angles?

Because it is to the west of south the bearing is written as South 62° West or S62°W. A true bearing expresses the direction in terms of the angle made with North, the angle always being drawn clockwise. For example: In the diagram at right the angle drawn clockwise from North is 35°. Thus its true bearing is 35°T.

## How do you convert degrees to 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°.
