Add bearing methods to the JavaScript API geometryEngine module

    I had modified the out of the box draw widget from the Web Application Builder to draw interactive distance measurements of users chosen geometry.  You can view the widget at: Measure Widget 1.3.1 for Web App Builder 

     

    The widget makes use of the geometryEngine's geodesicLength and planarLength methods to calculate the distances display as the geometry is being drawn.  I have had a few requests to add bearing to this measurement and there currently is no method for geodesicBearing or planarBearing.  I am suggesting that those methods be added to the geometryEngine module.  I am certain these would be of use to other JavaScript developers too.

     

    Thanks for your consideration!
