Angle systems category let you define angle systems. The definition includes the unit of the angles, the direction of zero for heading, and the directions of increasing heading, roll, and pitch angles.

A new angle system can be defined by using the Add button in the TerraPhoto Settings dialog. An existing system is modified by selecting the system and using the Edit button. A data click on the Delete button deletes a selected angle system.
