(engineering)
An angle in triangulation or in traverse through which the computation of azimuth is carried.

azimuth angle (Z)

Azimuth angles in both these two cases are 070°.
i. The arc of the horizon between the observer's meridian and the vertical circle of an object, measured either from the north or south, to the right or clock-wise, or to the left or counterclock-wise, through 90° or 180°. It must be labeled north or south (as a prefix) and east or west (as a prefix) to indicate the direction of measurement.
ii. An angle measured clock-wise in the horizontal plane between a reference direction and any other line.

When the directional response pattern is highly symmetric about the reference axis, which is commonly the case for directional microphones isolated in a free field, Q can be determined from data obtained only in the horizontal plane at [alpha] = 0[degrees] between the azimuth angles of 0[degrees] and 180[degrees] (11), (12).
