These lines are generally referred to as a bearing or azimuth. For GIS and mapping more generally, there are two variations of an azimuth that are worth detailing. , 2011, p. 256). Values range from 0° to 360°. However, we have already established that the only locations where an azimuth is constant would be along a meridian or an equator. Thus, a true azimuth must make use of the angular calculations with reference to a meridian to obtain an accurate measure of direction. Also relevant is the constant azimuth, or a loxodrome.

For example, the difference between 110° and 115° Fahrenheit, is the same as the difference between 0° and 5° Fahrenheit. Ratio data have a clearly deﬁned zero value. For example, attributes such as elevation and weight are ratio data. Where elevation is concerned, we know that a value of zero corresponds to sea level. We also know that an entity with zero weight is, in fact, weightless. Lastly, there are cyclic geographic data (Chrisman, 1997). Cyclic data include information on ﬂows and their compass direction.
