English abstract:
This paper deals with current ongoing efforts to investigate the influence of different presentation forms on spatial knowledge acquisition. The acquisition of spatial knowledge based on map, augmented reality (AR), and language is analyzed and compared in an empirical test for GPS-based pedestrian navigation. This paper describes the hypothesis and the methodology. Also work in progress on interpreting the results is presented. It is proposed that the results will be very useful for future mobile navigation system developments, as navigation systems typically use different presentation forms for conveying information, which may affect users' spatial knowledge acquistion, and thus influence wayfinding success.
