We have two short papers accepted for GIScience 2016 in Montreal, Canada. Both papers look at how the use of navigation services (negatively) influences the users’ acquisition of spatial knowledge and some conditions under which this detrimental effect may be alleviated. The papers are:
Annina Brügger, Kai-Florian Richter, Sara Irina Fabrikant: Walk and Learn: An Empirical Framework for Assessing Spatial Knowledge Acquisition during Mobile Map Use.
Patrice Frei, Kai-Florian Richter and Sara Irina Fabrikant: Stress Supports Spatial Knowledge Acquisition during Wayfinding with Mobile Maps.
