Positioning APs on prime infrastructure map

I have a 3600i AP positioned vertically on a wall facing out. I know this is bad placement I am working on getting them all oriented with some new mounts for the type of office we have. How do I position this in terms of orientation and elevation. After I position the AP on the map and check the heatmap I am expecting to see low signal going behind the AP but it still looks like the AP is horizontal.

If the upper left is 0 degrees and my wall is on the right side of my map along the Y axis with the AP mounted facing back towards the left side of my map. What should my elevation and orientation be set to?
