# azimuth

Azimuth between points on sphere or ellipsoid

## Syntax

## Description

calculates the great circle azimuth from the point with geographic coordinates
`az`

= azimuth(`lat1`

,`lon1`

,`lat2`

,`lon2`

)`lat1`

and `lon1`

to the point with geographic
coordinates `lat2`

and `lon2`

. The function measures
azimuths clockwise from north. This syntax references the coordinates to a sphere and
returns `az`

in degrees.
