Use GPS to calculate bearing, then convert into a Cartesian coordinate system
Posted on 2009-12-30
I am trying to calculate a bearing/heading between a fixed origin GPS point and a Rover GPS. I am able to calculate the proper distances into feet, but I need to be able to place this in a grid system similar to that of the Cartesian coordinate system. To do so, I would like to be able to calculate the heading (degrees) and then convert it so I could properly plot the values. My current calculations place all of my values in the first quadrant, and this is incorrect.
