Abstract

Motivated by a "microworlds"-style approach to cognitive studies, we prepared for research in spatial cognition by developing a software construction kit based on Kevin Lynch's "elements of the city image" [2, 41. His notion of the "city image" is that of a mental map structured on five basic elements, representations of which become the basis of our design tool. Users create maps by arranging these elements into colorful layouts, thereby establishing particular spatial relationships. The software transforms these maps into series of street-levels views that maintain the topological relationships.
