Extensive Definition

The term positioning has more than one meaning:
  • "Positioning" is also the term for the careful placement of objects
    • by the use of precise navigation: for example, in the term "Global Positioning System" (which often refers rather to finding than getting into the position). Then positioning may include not just the location, but also the bearing of the positioned object. See Real time locating.
