This online calculator is created after the user's request, and it is just a convenient shortcut between Course angle and the distance between the two points on loxodrome (rhumb line). and Points of the compass calculators. The first calculates a distance on loxodrome (rhumb line) and course angle (azimuth) between two points with given geographical coordinates. The second one outputs compass point given course angle in degrees.
So, thanks to the ability to reuse calculator logic, this calculator accepts coordinates of two points, sends them over to the loxodrome calculator, receives a directional angle, sends it over to the compass point calculator, and receives a compass point.
Finally, it outputs azimuth, distance in km and nm, compass point name, its degrees in DMS (degrees minutes seconds), and decimal format. You can also change a compass rose used.
