Six Degrees Of Freedom, or 6 DOF. These terms are usually used with tracking systems, to display objects within large-scale research or high-end immersive world systems. Motion tracking either complies to 3 DOF, or 6 DOF standards.

3 DOF means that tracking works out the X, Y, and Z orientation of an object, whilst 6 DOF means the X, Y, and Z orientation of an object is tracked, along with its current position in relation to other objects.

6 DOF is invaluable in situations such as tracking a flock of birds, where you don't really desire seeing individual birds appear to merge because they are not keeping track of each others positions.
