Abstract:

This book considers how people talk about their environment, find their way in
new surroundings, and plan routes. Part I explores the empirical insights
gained from research in the cognitive underpinnings of spatial representation
in language. Part II proposes solutions for capturing such insights formally,
and in Part III authors discuss how theory is put into practice through
spatial assistance systems. These three perspectives stem from research
disciplines which deal with the spatial domain in different ways, and which
often remain separate. In this book they are combined so as to highlight both
the state of the art in the field and the benefit of building bridges between
methodologies and disciplines. Finding our way and planning routes is relevant
to us all; this book ultimately helps improve our everyday lives.
