I need to calculate between to compass headings and provide the shortest answer with a + or a - in front of the result.
350 - 356 would result in + 6
350 - 345 would result in - 5
355 - 002 would result in + 7
the end result will be applied to an iPad using PDF Expert as the reader
any help would be appreciated...thank you
You need to better explain the logic behind this calculation... How do you calculate the difference between these two values (I'm guessing it's something to do with 360, but it's not really clear)?
That is correct, a compass has 360 degrees to make a full circle then begins again at a compass reading of 001 at that point....in aviation circles, we need to account for the difference between two independent sources of navigation which use the compass readings for reference. That difference is then logged for our records.
Hope that clarifies the request...
Not really... Please provide the exact logic or formula behind the calculation you want to achieve.
