Recently, for the advance of information technologies, a pedestrian traffic support like navigation system with mobile phone is spreading. In pedestrian traffic, it is important to consider space perception. The city planning, the transport planning, mobile GIS and disaster prevention need to consider space perception too. In this research, we investigate how to make a hand-written map, to understand the feature of spatial perception for the pedestrian. Using the information obtained by the investigation, we made a model showing the type and position of landmarks that are important for the pedestrian traffic. Using the model, a system for making route guide map that is one of the methods to support pedestrian traffic is developed.
