Terrestrial navigation cannot be defined in a rigorous manner. The heterogeneous techniques and methods make it difficult to define a unique classification. Throughout this book, the notation terrestrial navigation is applied to all techniques that are based on terrestrial sightings and/or measurements; however, radio navigation systems are not included. Terrestrial navigation comprises dead reckoning, visual navigation, and some other generic position fixing techniques. These methods are applied in land, maritime, and aeronautic applications.
