gives meaning to experiences", Pauli Tapani Karjalainen (2003:88) sums up the relevance of space in life experience by emphasizing that "human life is a topocentric reality".
The sighting of the crescent would be impossible from all the continents on June 3 (Monday) because the moon on that day sets before sunset and/or the topocentric conjunction occurs after the sunset, Khaleej Times reported while quoting the IAC official website.

Such control relies on a topocentric logic (Bohannan 1963) structured around the centre, whose capacity for control declines with distance, and not on a geometric approach defined by borders.
Received geocentric Cartesian coordinates (XYZ) were subsequently transformed to the local topocentric Cartesian coordinates and to displacements.
Tip: Once you've installed it, open the Configuration menu, make sure the Topocentric button is selected, and then enter your site's latitude and longitude (the default location is in France).
The navigation frames of the main system and subsystem are both topocentric frames (the z-axis parallel to the upward vertical, the x-axis pointing eastward, and the y-axis pointing northward), represented by n and [n.sub.s], respectively.
The quality is measured in terms of standard deviations of the topocentric coordinates ([delta]e, [delta]n, [delta]u).
All of the Cartesian coordinates (X,Y,Z) provided by the systems and determined manually in ITRF2008 datum were then converted to the local topocentric coordinates (north, east and up) and differences for all components were calculated as reads by Equation 4.
From the astrometry-corrected images, topocentric right ascension and declination angles of detected RSOs are measured by using the highly precise positions of known background stars in the captured images.
He understands the human history as inscribed in space and this approach is a basis of the discipline proposed by him, which is topocentric historiography.
