## Three Figure Bearings

In this hub we will be looking at three figure bearings.

(True bearings)

The true bearing of a point is the angle measured in degrees,

in a clockwise direction from the North Line.

The true bearing will be referred to simply as the “bearing”

The four main directions of a compass are known as the cardinal points.

Where the NE, NW, SE and SW would be referred to as the half cardinal points.

The North represents                00 or 3600
