This chapter evaluates one example of the link between the underlying spatial representation and the external information that is presented in the previous chapters, addressing the developmental changes that take place. It focuses on the features of maps that affect learning, on spatial perspective, on the use of location information to assist identification, on the representation of the spatial features that give rise to spatial categories for projective relations such as above and below, and on the relation between linguistic features and the spatial features that define containment and support categories. Within each section, the issues that offer a useful contribution to researchers in adult spatial cognition and issues from the adult spatial cognition literature that could be profitably examined developmentally are highlighted.

Keywords:   spatial relations, spatial representation, developmental changes, maps, learning, location, spatial cognition, adult
