Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.
With 185,502 views on Wednesday, 22 August 2018 our article of the day is Navigation paradox.
The navigation paradox states that increased navigational precision may result in increased collision risk. In the case of ships and aircraft, the advent of Global Positioning System (GPS) navigation has enabled craft to follow navigational paths with such greater precision (often of the order of plus or minus 2 meters), that, without better distribution of routes, coordination between neighboring craft and collision avoidance procedures, the likelihood of two craft occupying the same space on the shortest distance line between two navigational points has increased.
