Navigation is the art and science of determining the position of a ship, plane or other vehicle, and guiding it to a specific tion requires a person to know the vehicle's relative location, or position compared to other known locations. Navigators measure distance on the globe in degrees. Understanding latitude and longitude are very important in navigation.

Modern navigation By the end of the 19th century, marine navigation had evolved into a fully systematic technique, combining the simplicity and reliability required by its practitioners with the rigour and accuracy founded in the skills and knowledge of astronomers, mathematicians, cartographers, and instrument makers.

The International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (COLREGs) are published by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and set out, among other things, the "rules of the road" or navigation rules to be followed by ships and other vessels at sea to prevent collisions between two or more vessels.
