The difference is really between the projected and geographic coordinates. Let me explain the case if you have projected coordinates - which is simpler:

original coordinates: x1,y1 (x:abscissa, y: ordinate) distance: d azimuth: a x2 = x1 + d*sin(a) y2 = y1 + d*cos(a)

However, here are the formulas to calculate coordinates on the sphere based on the bearing and distance.
