Lightroom Classic display image direction in degrees, not text

At the present time upon import or reading metadata from photos Lightroom converts the value for the direction of the image–GPSImageDirection in exif–from a numerical value (like say 187 or 46) to textual directions (South or North-West).

I'd prefer that the numerical value be shown as the default, and the textual as an option, if at all. Modern camera GPS and compass info can be accurate and precise enough that Lightroom is effectively skewing the information by rounding to cardinal directions (the info remains stored in the image files, thankfully).
