English abstract:
GPS-based pedestrian navigation systems have become more and more popular in recent years. This paper reports a work in progress on investigating the differences of spatial knowledge acquisition with different interface technologies in the context of GPS-based pedestrian navigation. The acquisition of spatial knowledge based on mobile maps, augmented reality, and voice is analysed and compared in a field test in the city centre of Salzburg (Austria). This paper presents the methodology and interprets the results. The results raise some hints for future mobile navigation system development, which might need to consider not only how to effectively assist users´ navigation tasks, but also how these systems affect users´ spatial knowledge acquisition
