It should be noted here that the emphasis in these notes is placed on the so­ called second-order geodetic astronomy. This fact is reflected in the treatment of . The azimuth of Polaris at the latitude 40° north is represented by the angle N O S, and that at 60° north, by the angle N O' S, which is greater, being an exterior angle of the triangle, O S O. From this we see that the azimuth varies at the latitude. We have first, then, to find the latitude of the place of observation.

Simultaneous determination of latitude, longitude and azimuth by horizontal directions at the sun. ) Basic Concepts: In Figure 3, it can be seen that the azimuth of the star equals the azimuth of the line plus the horizontal angle. Thus the azimuth of the line equals the azimuth of the star minus the measured horizontal angle, or in equation form is: where Azline is the azimuth of the line at the time the azimuth of the star is determined. Let's define an example with three points: p1 at °N °E; p2 at °N °E. North Magnetic Pole at °N °W; To calculate the azimuth angle between each coordinate pair, you can use GeographicLib, for example the online the fazi1 azimuth from the inverse geodesic to get the forward azimuth from p1 to the second point.
