Public Shared Function CalculateBearing(
    p1 As GeoPoint,
    p2 As GeoPoint
) As Double


Name Type Description
p1 GeoPoint

The first geographical point.

p2 GeoPoint

The second geographical point.


Type Description

The bearing in degrees.


Note that the perpendicular line to the Geodetic North is plotted from the first point.

The code below calculates the bearing by two geographical points.

double bearing = GeoUtils.CalculateBearing(new GeoPoint(36.1, -115.1), new GeoPoint(35.9, -115.9));
