The science and the skill of crafting a boat on the safest way from one point to another. The theory of navigation is based on the basic laws of mathematics, physics, geodesy, astronomy, electrical engineering and other scientific disciplines (hydrography, cartography, meteorology, etc.).

It is a field of study that focuses on the process of monitoring and controlling the movement of a craft or vehicle from one place to another. It can be divided in four general categories: land, marine, aeronautic and space navigation.
In a broader sense, it can refer to any skill or study that involves the determination of position and direction.
Celestial nav. systems are based on observation of the positions of the Sun, Moon, Planets and navigational stars. Such systems are in use as well for terrestrial navigating as for interstellar navigating. By knowing which point on the rotating earth a celestial object is above and measuring its height above the observer’s horizon, the navigator can determine his distance from that subpoint.
It is the method that uses landmarks as reference points. It also includes ship’s stability, fuel consumption and ship’s speed along with tides and currents.
Inertial nav. system is a dead reckoning type of system that computes its position based on motion sensors. Once the initial latitude and longitude is established, the system receives impulses from motion detectors that measure the acceleration along three or more axes enabling it to continually and accurately calculate the current latitude and longitude.
A radio direction finder or RDF is a device for finding the direction to a radio source. Due to radio’s ability to travel very long distances “over the horizon”, it makes a particularly good nav. system for ships and aircrafts.
Global Navi. Satellite System or GNSS is the term for satellite systems that provide positioning with global coverage. A GNSS allow small electronic receivers to determine their location (longitude, latitude, and altitude) to within a few metres using time signals transmitted along a line of sight by radio from satellites.
