In the past people needed special training and equipment to perform precise navigation, but today almost anyone can be a navigator.
Until recently, only people with access to the proper type of technology and training could perform accurate global navigation. Navigating at sea required many complex steps and special equipment, such as chronometers and sextants. In the 20th century, understanding how to navigate an aircraft required weeks of training. Navigating spacecraft to other planets was possible only with advanced technology and teams of talented engineers. Today, the technology needed to accurately navigate is integrated into mobile computing devices and phones. Almost anyone can be a navigator. This opens up new possibilities and challenging questions.
