You can transform your results via sinus, cosinus in a paraview calculator.
The angle can be computed by a calculator too. Paraview gives you the coordinates of every cell.

Please read the ParaView Manual.
You find it as pdf in the folder "doc" in your paraview installation directory.
There is describted how to use the Calulator Tool in Paraview.
