Such situations also occur in navigation, where we have to combine data from diverse navigational devices with archival data, including images. This article discusses a problem of the fusion of position data from shipboard devices with those retrieved from a hydrographic data base, the data being of varying accuracy. These considerations are illustrated with examples of the fusion of shipboard measurements with the pier line (or another cartographic object).}, doi = {10.12716/1001.07.03.09}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Point Objects, Linear Objects, Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS), Integrated Data, Navigation, Data Fusion, Fusion of Position Data, Cartographic Object} }
