Navigation is the process of planning, recording, and controlling the movement of a craft or vehicle from one place to another. The word navigate is derived from the Latin roots navis meaning "ship" and agere meaning "to move" or "to direct." Different navigational techniques have evolved over the ages in different cultures, but all involve locating one's position compared to known locations or patterns. It is also used in computer science as a term related to the Internet.
