    the direction or position of something, or the direction of movement, relative to a fixed point. It is typically measured in degrees, usually with magnetic north as zero : the Point is on a bearing of 015°.

    @Robtobey what do you mean point is at 015, the true north pole point?

    The FAA radars use true north as a bearing reference of 0 degrees.|dw:1391443451498:dw|

    As you may know magnetic north is slowly changing in it's position, this small difference is known as the "declination angle", true north is equal to magnetic north corrected by eighter adding or subtracting the (depending on your earth location) the declination angle.

    I believe Robtobey was using an example, a bearing of 015 is a direction 15 degrees East of North.

    Note the clockwise direction, just like a rose on a compass.
