Unfortunately there is no consistent direction: it depends on the context. If dealing with bearings (eg navigation) North is 000 degrees and the angle is measured in the clockwise direction starting from the Northward direction. In the context of coordinate geometry, particularly if working with polar coordinates, angles are measured in the anti-clockwise direction, starting with the x-axis (pointing East) as 0 degrees. Generally speaking, though, angles may be measured in any direction.

An azimuth is defined as a horizontal angle measured clockwise from a north base line. This north base line could be true north, magnetic north, or grid north. The azimuth is the most common military method to express direction. When using an azimuth, the point from which the azimuth originates is the center of an imaginary circle . This circle is divided into 360 degrees or 6400 mils . NORTH IS 0/360 AZIMUTH EAST IS 90. SOUTH IS 180. WEST IS 270.

A bearing is the angle made by a direction with the line pointing North, measured in the clockwise direction. A bearing is represented as a 3-digit number. So the bearing for North is 000, North-East is 045 East is 090, South is 180 West is 270 and just short of North is 359.

A vertical line goes North And South and a horizontal line goes East And West.

It could describe the bearing, if expressed as a three digit number.

If I understand the question correctly, the answer is that it is simply a case of convention. For bearings, for example, the reference line is North and angles are measured clockwise. In 2-D polar coordinates, the reference line is the horizontal (going East) and angles are measured in the anti-clockwise direction.

The horizontal angular distance from a reference direction, usually the northern point of the horizon, to the point where a vertical circle through a celestial body intersects the horizon, usually measured clockwise. Sometimes the southern point is used as the reference direction, and the measurement is made clockwise through 360Â°.The horizontal angle of the observer's bearing in surveying, measured clockwise from a referent direction, as from the north, or from a referent celestial body, usually Polaris.The lateral deviation of a projectile or bomb.

You find the angle with a fixed direction using trigonometry. You then convert it to an angle measured in degrees, clockwise from North, and written as a three digit number.
