Representing Space in Cognition: Interrelations of behaviour, language, and formal models

Thora Tenbrink, Jan M. Wiener, and Christophe Claramunt

Abstract

Research in the areas of spatial language, spatial cognition, and spatial information science has undergone a rapid development within the past decades. Increasingly, interdisciplinary efforts are now aiming towards practical applications for the modern mobile everyday world. This results in widespread interest in combining representation models from various sources. In particular, the existing approaches to interpreting spatial representations in language deserve to be systematically combined with behavioural navigation and action data, associated cognitive processes and strategies, and forma ...

Keywords: spatial language, spatial cognition, spatial assistance, formalization, modelling
