      The Azimuth Angle – also known as Z is the bearing of the sun’s ground position from our boat’s position. The best picture I can find to explain it is this one below from the book Celestial Navigation by Dominique Prinet. Title: Polaris Almanac for azimuth determination. Pub.

    C. Chang, in Advances in Solar Heating and Cooling, Dual-axis tracking. The altitude angle and azimuth angle of the sun are changing all the time. The dual-axis tracking device tracks the sun to collect more solar energy. According to the type of axis, the dual-axis tracking device can be divided into two types: polar-axis tracking and altitude–azimuth tracking.   The rapid and precise determination of the azimuth information, purely based on the satellite positioning technology of global positioning system (GPS), is tested and evaluated by this paper. The main consideration of using GPS for the azimuth determination is expected to replace the traditional astronomical azimuth measurement, which is.

Manual of Geodetic Astronomy: Determination of Longitude, Latitude and Azimuth, Volume 4 Albert J. Hoskinson, Jacob Arthur Duerksen U.S. Government Printing Office, - Geodesy. An azimuth (/ ˈ æ z ɪ m ə θ / (); from Arabic اَلسُّمُوت as-sumūt, 'the directions', the plural form of the Arabic noun السَّمْت as-samt, meaning 'the direction') is an angular measurement in a spherical coordinate vector from an observer to a point of interest is projected perpendicularly onto a reference plane; the angle between the projected vector and a.

Simultaneous determination of latitude, longitude and azimuth by horizontal directions at the sunAuthor: G. Husti. The angle of incidence of the solar beam, ν(β,α), on a surface of tilt β and surface azimuth angle α is calculated from the solar altitude and solar azimuth angles.

The wall solar azimuth angle α F has to be calculated first using Eq. (12).The sign convention adopted for wall solar azimuth angle is the same as that used for the solar azimuth angle. adshelp[at] The ADS is operated by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory under NASA Cooperative Agreement NNX16AC86A.

Exact determination of the azimuth of the datum point (reference mark) is very important in the determination of the geomagnetic declination.

Astronomy: Determination of Time, Longitude, Latitude, and Azimuth, Volume 4 U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, William Bowie U.S. Government Printing Office, - Spherical astronomy - .The horizontal coordinate system is fixed to a location on Earth, not the stars. Therefore, the altitude and azimuth of an object in the sky changes with time, as the object appears to drift across the sky with Earth's addition, since the horizontal system is defined by the observer's local horizon, the same object viewed from different locations on Earth at the same .Attitude provides information about an object's orientation with respect to the local level frame (horizontal plane) and true north.

GNSS attitude solutions typically consist of three components: roll, pitch and yaw. The easiest way to understand what we mean by attitude is to consider a plane with three linear axis running through it.
