# How to convert double bearing into x and y coordinate

Geographic Information Systems## How do you convert bearings to coordinates?

Quote from video: *The departure is calculated by L sine theta and the latitude is calculated by L cos theta. So if you know the coordinate of point a then you can get the coordinate of easting/northing.*

## How do you convert angles into X and Y coordinates?

Quote from video: *So what you want to do is take the arc tan or the tan inverse of both sides.*

## How to convert northing easting coordinates to longitude latitude?

**Subtract the easting and northing by their respective offset values**. (The values will be in meters.) Find the longitude of the given point by finding the destination point given the base point, the absolute value of the easting, and the bearing of 90 degrees if the easting is positive, or 270 degrees if it’s negative.

## How do you convert coordinates to latitude and longitude?

**Community Mapping Experiment: How to Convert Latitude and Longitude to Map Coordinates**

- Step 1: Multiply (×) the “degrees” by 60.
- Step 2: Add (+) the “minutes”
- Step 3: If the Latitude (Longitude) degrees are S (W) use a minus sign (“-“) in front.
- Step 4: Subtract Reference Location converted to Minutes.

## How do you convert bearings to direction angles?

Quote from video: *Your bearing based on the angle that you're given keep in mind for bearings zero degrees is due north and then we measure clockwise.*

## How do you convert XY coordinates to latitude and longitude in GIS?

**To convert coordinates, complete the following steps:**

- On the ribbon, click the Map tab.
- In the Inquiry group, click Coordinate Conversion. .
- In the Coordinate Conversion pane, click Map Point Tool. and click a location on the map.
- Enter coordinates in the Enter a coordinate text box and press Enter.

## How do you convert angles into coordinates?

**To convert from Polar Coordinates (r,θ) to Cartesian Coordinates (x,y) :**

- x = r × cos( θ )
- y = r × sin( θ )

## How do you calculate bearing points?

Use the angle fact that angles in a full turn add to 360°. To work the bearing, **subtract 130° from 360°**. 360° – 130° = 230° and so, the bearing of A from B is 230°.

## How do you turn a bearing into a decimal?

**Decimal degrees = Degrees + (Minutes/60) + (Seconds/3600)**

- First, convert minutes and seconds to their degree equivalents and add the results. 25’/60 = 0.4167° 30″/3600 = .0083°
- Then, add this number to the number of degrees. 39° + 0.425° = 39.425°
- So, the final result is: 39° 25′ 30″ = 39.425°

## How do you convert a compass bearing to a 3 digit bearing?

Quote from video: *Direction for 52 degrees we draw the line. And then for three figure bearing. We start from the knot. And move clockwise. Until we get to this line. So in that case. We call it theta.*
