Towards the next-generation GIS: a geometric algebra approach
Return to Book Page. Preview — Spatial Cognition by Robert Lloyd. This volume approaches geography as a cognitive science focusing on the processes used for learning and decision-making.
This book argues that geographers need a theoretical understanding of how people process spatial information. How people store and use information they have acquired about environments is considered in a variety of geographic contexts. Cognitive theories This volume approaches geography as a cognitive science focusing on the processes used for learning and decision-making. Cognitive theories and connectionist models are related to geographic problems to explain how spatial information is processed.
The nature of cognitive maps, the processes used to encode them, and their systematic distortions are reviewed. A perception theory that explains the temporary tracking of environmental objects is considered as well as a theory that explains how verbal and visual information can be combined to create mental models of geographic environments in long-term memory. Other theories are considered that explain visual search processes used to find symbols or boundaries on maps.
The processes used to learn spatial categories and prototypes, to create abstract knowledge in basic-level categories, and to judge the similarity of objects are also addressed.
