Description

This function calculates the mean azimuth of a set of input azimuths.

Usage

1
MeanAzimuth(azimuths)

Arguments

azimuths

Vector containing the values of the azimuths

Details

One way to obtain a set of azimuths from X and Y coordinates of the vectors is to use the LoadData function.

Value
