The cognitive conceptual approach as a leitmotif for map design


Klippel, Alexander; Lee, P U; Fabrikant, Sara I; Montello, Daniel R; Bateman, John (2005). The cognitive conceptual approach as a leitmotif for map design. In: Barkowsky, Thomas; Freksa, Christian; Hegarty, Mary; Lowe, Ric. Reasoning with Mental and External Diagrams: Computational Modeling and Spatial Assistance. Papers from the 2005 AAAI Spring Symposium. Technical Report. Stanford: American Association for Artificial Intelligence, 90-95.

Abstract

This paper explores the possibility of organizing map design around conceptual spatial representations (CSRs). CSR refers to a mental representation that is instantiated in interaction with a spatial environment, a spatial representational medium, and/or while solving spatial problems. For this approach we coin the term cognitive conceptual. We detail the basic assumptions in a contrastive manner, i.e., by juxtaposing it against a stylized cartographic approach, and indicate future directions for this research.
