Bahm, C. R. and Hirtle, Stephen C. (2015) Cognition for the navigation of complex Indoor environments. In: Indoor Wayfinding and Navigation. CRC Press, Boca Raton, FL, pp. 1-12. ISBN 9781482230857

WarningThere is a more recent version of this item available.


Indoor navigation has proved to be complex to understand and to support with the use of external aids, be it signage, maps, or navigational devices. Research on the spatial cognition of complex indoor environments for the purpose of navigation is reviewed. The result of this analysis is an aggregated view of what makes indoor environments different from out- door or transitional environments. The goal of this chapter is to coalesce the known cognitive principles to guide further research and tools in indoor wayfinding.
