Abstract:

This paper introduces a model of spatial cognition to describe the states of partial knowledge that people have about the spatial structure of large-scale environment. Spatial knowledge has several different representations, each of which captures one aspect of the geography. With knowledge stored in multiple representations, we must examine the procedures for assimilating new information, for solving problems, and for communicating information between representation.
