Abstract We construct the optimal strategy for the estimation of an unknown unitary transformation U is an element of SU(d). This includes, in addition to a convenient measurement on a probe system, finding which is the best initial state on which U is to act. When U is an element of SU(2), such an optimal strategy can be applied to simultaneously estimate both the direction and the strength of a magnetic field, and shows how to use a spin 1/2 particle to transmit information about a whole coordinate system instead of only a direction in space.
