In the United States, the most common angular unit employed is the sexagesimal system. Here, the angular notation is given in increments of 60 degrees in a whole circle of 360 degrees.

Read On: Horizontal Angles in Surveying - Deflection Angles

Here,

- Degrees are divided into 60 minutes
- Minutes are divided into 60 seconds

1 circle = 360° = 21,600´ = 1,296,000˝

1° = 60´ = 3600˝

1´ = 60˝

They are represented as 34° 81´ 72˝. Here, the minutes or seconds equal to greater than 60 are carried over to the next larger unit. The degrees and minutes do not have decimals, while decimal seconds are acceptable.

The angles measured in surveying can be represented as 23^{o}12’18^{’’ } or as 23.205^{o}.

23^{o}12^{’}18^{’’} = 23 + (12/60)^{o}
+ (18/60)^{’} = 23 + (12/60)^{o}+ (18/3600)^{o}

As explained above, the 12’ is converted into a degree by
dividing it by 60. The 18’’ (seconds) is converted initially into minutes by
dividing it by 60, which is then divided by 60 to convert it into degrees.

__Example 2: Convert 42.885 ^{o}
into Degree-Minute-Seconds__

__Solution:__

42.885^{O} =
42 + (0.885 x 60’) = 42 + 53.1’’ = 42^{o} + 53’ + (0.1 x 60)’’ = 42^{o}53’06’’

In the above problem, 0.885 degrees is converted into minutes by multiplying it by 60. Here, the minutes obtained is 53.1', where 0.1 minutes is converted into seconds by multiplying it by 60. This is done so that, there are no decimal places in minute places of the angle.

The primary unit of angular measurement in the metric system is the radian. A radian is defined as the angle between radius lines from either end of an arc of radius length.

Circumference C = 2Ï€.r (Where, r= radius of the circle)

1 circle = 360 degrees = 2Ï€.radians

1 rad = 360/2Ï€ = 57.29.degrees

Radians is used to deal with circular and spiral curves.

__Grad or Gon__

Grad or gon is defined as the 1/400 of a circle. It is used in the metric system, but lesser than radians.
