Rotation of a linear map

Here are the linear maps:

(0 0 1) (1 0 0 )
(1 0 0) (0 0 -1)
(0 1 0) (0 1 0 )

These two sets of numbers have to resemble two matrices of which both are rotations of R^3. I have to determine what the axis and angle of rotation of these linear maps are. I don't know even where to start. Please help me with it.

Thanks in advance!
