Sun, Yuyu; Lu, Xiaoxu; Wang, Yan – Journal of Geography, 2020
In this article, we use eye-tracking technology to analyze the eye movement differences in cognitive maps between high and low level map-based spatial ability participants, revealing key factors of superior spatial ability. It is found that focusing on the perception of spatial structure information, constructing and manipulating complex images…
