I am not sure this is the exact answer for you question but may be helpful. If you consider an image and you want to find the angle at any point from 0,0 you can consider the image as third quadrant and you will get angle in the range of -90 to -179.99 using atan2(). And if your reference is centre of the image the upper quadrants will be in the range of 0 to 180 and the lower quadrants gives approximately -.1 to -179.99. The below code may give you the idea about the arc tangent of any point in the given image. You can use mouse click to point out the co-ordinates.

CvPoint p1={0,0};

CvFont font;
CvPoint cent={0,0} ;//Change to width/2,height/2 for calculating tangent from center of image

double angle=0;

angle = atan2(cent.y - p1.y,cent.x - p1.x) * 180.0 / CV_PI;

sprintf(name,"Angle  = %f degree",angle);
cvPutText(src,name, cvPoint(15, 130), &font, cvScalar(0,255,0));
cvShowImage("out", src);
