Sima Vaez, Matthew Burke, Rongrong Yu
2021 Interdisciplinary Journal of Signage and Wayfinding  
Post-task tests showed that participants in the group without personal navigational aids were more successful in landmark recognition than map users.  ...  Thirty-eight participants were placed in one of three groups: i) a paper map only; ii) smartphones with the Google Maps app; and, iii) no navigational aids (local signage only).  ...  As GPS-based smartphone apps and similar technology improve, we need to continue to develop methods that help us observe behavior, capture acquired spatial memory, and understand how and why such memories  ...
