The azimuth is the angle formed atween a reference direction (North) an a line frae the observer tae a pynt o interest projected on the same plane as the reference direction orthogonal tae the zenith

An azimuth (frae Arabic al-sumūt, meanin "the directions") is an angular meisurment in a spherical coordinate seestem. The vector frae an observer (origin) tae a pynt o interest is projectit perpendicularly ontae a reference plane; the angle atween the projectit vector an a reference vector on the reference plane is cried the azimuth.
