Experiential hierarchies of streets

Martin Tomko, Stephan Winter, Christophe Claramunt
2008 Computers, Environment and Urban Systems  
The more prominent a street is, the more likely it is to be known by the wayfinder receiving the directions.  ...  The measure is derived from network connectivity measures, and takes into account the structure of the street network as well as the higher-order partition of the urban space into suburbs.  ...  Such hierarchies are therefore not necessarily suitable for cognitively ergonomic provision of route directions.  ...

Modified Navigation Instructions for Spatial Navigation Assistance Systems Lead to Incidental Spatial Learning

Klaus Gramann, Paul Hoepner, Katja Karrer-Gauss
2017 Frontiers in Psychology  
Participants navigated through a simulated urban and suburban environment, using navigation support to reach their destination. Driving performance as well as spatial learning was thereby assessed.  ...  Spatial cognitive skills deteriorate with the increasing use of automated GPS navigation and a general decrease in the ability to orient in space might have further impact on independence, autonomy, and  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT We would like to thank Matthias Roetting, chair of Human-Machine Systems, Technical University Berlin for providing the simulator facilities.  ...
