ABSTRACT: Plenty of various quality data are available to the officer of watch. The data of various qualities comes from different navigational aids. This kind of data creates new challenge regarding information association. The challenge is met by Mathematical Theory of Evidence. The theory delivers methods enabling combination of various sources of data. Results of association have informative context increased. Associated data enable the navigator to refine his position and his status regarding dangerous places. The procedure involves uncertainty, ambiguity and vague evidence. Imprecise and incomplete evidence can be combined using extended Dempster-Shafer reasoning scheme.
