Apparatus and method for providing true geodetic coordinates

An embodiment of the present invention utilizes the Reference Point Method (RPM). RPM generates a local magnetic declination variance that is exact for the location of the OP, utilizing an optical stereo imagery database. RPM functions to determine true geodetic coordinates of a target position not available to be displayed in an image database, such as, for example, movable equipment.
