Navigation, Principles of Positioning and Guidance

Bernhard Hofmann-Wellenhof, Klaus Legat and Manfred Wieser

Global navigation satellite systems like GPS or the future European Galileo are influencing the world of navigation tremendously. Today, everybody is concerned with navigation, even if unaware of this fact. This book provides an encyclopedic view of navigation. Fundamental elements are presented for a better understanding of the techniques, methods, and systems used in positioning and guidance. 

The first part of the book comprises a historical review, mathematical and physical fundamentals, and navigational maps. The second part treats the methods of positioning including terrestrial, celestial, satellite-based, inertial, image-based, and integrated navigation. Routing and guidance are the main topics of the third part. Applications on land, at sea, in the air, and in space are considered.
