Wayfinding with Schematic Maps
...that is what we are working on.
I2-[MapSpace] in a nutshell:
The project develops a formal framework for adaptive wayfinding
assistance systems. This framework will serve to produce a theory
of schematic representations for geographic information. We
devise representations, specifically schematic maps, to match
human conceptualization. This enables the development of
assistance systems that adapt to the users' cognitive background.
The development of computational models is accompanied by
empirical studies; this allows a direct coupling of formal
analysis and empirical results.
