azimuth angle

[′az·ə·məth ′aŋ·gəl]
(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.
