Abstract

The purpose of this study is to develop a map navigation system which shows variable map according to the user's spatial perception. In order to achieve this purpose, first of all, we developed a map navigation system which toggles a viewpoint as a prototype. The result of an experiment using the prototype showed that the system had some effects. Then we proposed a categories method using Sense of Direction Questionnaire-Short Form (SDQ-S) by experiments of SDQ-S and sketch maps. As a result, we developed a map system which changes a viewpoint, a rotation, and an alert function depending on the user's spatial perception pattern categorised by SDQ-S. This system was implemented as a smartphone application.
