Hi,

here's code for a bearingTo method (similar to distanceTo) for the

GeoPoint class:

---

public double bearingTo(final GeoPoint other)

{

final double lat1 = Math.toRadians(this.mLatitudeE6 / 1E6);

final double long1 = Math.toRadians(this.mLongitudeE6 / 1E6);

final double lat2 = Math.toRadians(other.mLatitudeE6 / 1E6);

final double long2 = Math.toRadians(other.mLongitudeE6 / 1E6);

final double delta_long = long2 - long1;

final double a = Math.sin(delta_long) * Math.cos(lat2);

final double b = Math.cos(lat1) * Math.sin(lat2) - Math.sin(lat1)

* Math.cos(lat2) * Math.cos(delta_long);

final double bearing = Math.toDegrees(Math.atan2(a, b));

final double bearing_normalized = (bearing + 360) % 360;

return bearing_normalized;

}

regards,

Martin

Thanks for that Martin.

I've added it, plus some tests.
