ResumenFew scientific subjects have generated so much literature or so many expectations as the reckoning of longitude at sea. Since the 16th century numerous authors, including several charlatans and opportunists, took on the study of a topic which, apart from presenting a challenge to the scientific community, could also offer substantial economic benefits to the person who managed to find the solution. This paper describes the efforts made in 18th century Spain to acquire and adopt technology and knowledge on how to work out a ship's position.
