  Fix (position) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A position fix or simply a fix is a term used in position fixing in navigation to describe a position derived from measuring external reference points.
The term is generally used only with manual or visual techniques such as the use of intersecting visual or radio position lines rather than the use of more automated and accurate electronic methods such as GPS.
If three position lines can be obtained, the resulting "cocked hat" gives the navigator an indication of the accuracy in the three separate position lines.

 Astro Methodology   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
Position lines are generally assumed to be straight over distances up to a few hundred nautical miles.
To determine the position line, the altitude of the body is observed above the horizon with a marine sextant.
The position line is plotted at right angles to the azimuth of the body at the distance of the intercept from the estimated position - towards the body.

 Position line - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A position line is a line that can be identified both on a nautical chart or aeronautical chart and by observation out on the surface of the earth.
The intersection of two position lines is a fix that used in position fixing to identify the navigator's location.

Lines of latitude are not great circles; they are not centered around the center of the earth (except for the equator).
We then measure the intercept distance along the azimuth line from the AP, toward or away from the sun as appropriate (calculated greater away), and then draw a line perpendicular to the azimuth at this point.
This will result in two almost perpendicular lines, which will give us the most reliable fix with two lines (the closer the lines are to perpendicular, the less susceptible their crossing point is to error).

 GNU Emacs Lisp Reference Manual - Positions   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
Positions are usually represented as integers starting from 1, but can also be represented as markers---special objects that relocate automatically when text is inserted or deleted so they stay with the surrounding characters.
The first text line begins at the beginning of the buffer, and the last text line ends at the end of the buffer whether or not the last character is a newline.
Values such as positions or line numbers, which usually count from the beginning of the buffer, do so despite narrowing, but the functions which use them refuse to operate on text that is inaccessible.

 NeHe Productions: OpenGL Lesson #21
The fine positions have to be equal to the current player position, otherwise our player would move from whatever value it's at on the fine position to the top left of the screen.
If the current fine x position was 59 and the computer decided the player needed to move two pixels, the player would never line up with the vertical line at position 60 on the grid.
If the enemy x position is less than the player x position, and the enemy's fine y position is lined up with a horizontal line, we move the enemy x position one block closer to the current player position.

If LINE is greater than the number of lines in the buffer, it moves point to the end of the buffer--that is, the *end of the last line* of the buffer.
The return value of `goto-line' is the difference between LINE and the line number of the line to which point actually was able to move (in the full buffer, before taking account of narrowing).
The marker position is an integer that is equivalent (at a given time) to the marker as a position in that buffer.

 Lines of position form a Position fix: 4 Plotting, piloting.
An estimated position is based upon whatever incomplete navigational information is available, such as a single LOP, a series of depth measurements correlated to charted depths, or a visual observation of the surroundings.
This is done by drawing a line from the DR position at the time of the LOP perpendicular to the LOP.
In this event, a line of position obtained at an earlier time may be advanced to the time of the later LOP.

 GNU Emacs Lisp Reference Manual - Screen Lines   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
By contrast, these functions count screen lines, which are defined by the way the text appears on the screen.
A text line is a single screen line if it is short enough to fit the width of the selected window, but otherwise it may occupy several screen lines.
In some cases, text lines are truncated on the screen rather than continued onto additional screen lines.

Line 2 provides the detailed artwork description of the legend position and type of lighting, color, character height and specific legends to be displayed within that legend position.
When two or more legend positions (see Table 6) are to display legend information, a semicolon separates the legend information for each position.
When two or more lines of characters (see Table 9) are to be used in one legend position, the individual lines are separated by a comma.

 Dots-and-Boxes Analysis Methodology   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
Since the position's binary number has bits set to 0 if a line is present, the "and" of this and the test value produces a zero result if and only if the three lines are already present.
Assuming that the lines were divided into two groups of 19 lines each, I could have in RAM just the values corresponding a given number of lines for each of the two groups.
I made the assumption that once one of the players took a line in a chain, at least one of the best play lines involves all the rest of the lines in the chain being filled in, by one player or the other, before any lines elsewhere are filled in.

Advance the first line by moving any convenient point on the first line by the "run"-the course and distance made good over the ground during the time interval between observations.
This line is the first position line advanced and it should be marked by its direction, the time of its observation, and the time (of the second bearing) to which it's advanced.
From any convenient point A on the first position line, lay off AB (4 1/2 miles along the wake course adjusted for leeway-265 degrees).

The "aces" file (which uses lines) indicates the offset from the center of the laser range scanner from the robot center.
While the "aces" file nicely alternates the position and laser readings, the "intel" file generally has two position lines in a row (which are in general different), and the "stanford" file generally has a number of laser scans in a row (evidently without any position information associated with the scans).
The "laser-angles" line tells you how many ranges will be on each line, the angle of the first, the angle of the last, and the angular step between each.
