Item description for Mental Representation and Processing of Geographic Knowledge: A Computational Approach (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) by Thomas Barkowsky...
In cognitive science, mental representations of spatial knowledge are metaphorically referred to as cognitive maps. However, investigations in cognitive psychology reveal that the cognitive map metaphor is inadequate and that more suitable conceptions of humanspatial knowledgeprocessing are needed. This book addresses mental processing of knowledge about geographic space from an AI point of view by presenting an experimental computational modeling approach. Results about human memory and visual mental imagery fromcognitive psychology are combinedwith AI techniques of spatial and diagrammatic knowledge processing.The author develops the diagrammatic reasoning architecture MIRAGE as a comprehensive conception of human geographic knowledge processing.
