ABSTRACT: There are great many human activities where problems dealt with are based on data from a number of sources or where we lack certain data to solve a problem correctly. 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).
