What is a three-figure bearing.

Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "three-figure bearing" to get these possible sources:

From what I see, it is a number representing a direction away from a particular point, relating to the 360 degrees of a full circle.

See the sources for more information.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.

It is a bearing based from 000 to 360, where 000 is true North. Brearing are measured clockwise (090 is East)
Examples:
030, 270, 065, 295 etc
