A Sustainable Evaluation Method for a Tourism Public Wayfinding System: A Case Study of Shanghai Disneyland Resort
The traditional method of designing wayfinding systems has been used in tourism management for decades. However, the absence of quantitative evaluations for the wayfinding system at tourist resorts may affect information transmission and cause visitors to feel lost. This article proposes a quantitat...
Addressing crucial issues of indoor positioning systems
The goal of this Thesis is to propose novel methodologies to address crucial issues of indoor positioning systems (IPS). The problems addressed in this work are met throughout the whole life cycle of an IPS conception, realisation and operation, from designing innovative positioning methodologies to...
On the Right Track: Comfort and Confusion in Indoor Environments
Indoor navigation systems are not well adapted to the needs of their users. The route planning algorithms implemented in these systems are usually limited to shortest path calculations or derivatives, minimalizing Euclidian distance. Guiding people along routes that adhere better to their cognitive...
Spatial Knowledge Acquisition with Mobile Maps: Effects of Map Size on Users’ Wayfinding Performance with Interactive Interfaces
Restricted by the small screen size, it is challenging for users to obtain all the wayfinding content they need when utilizing mobile devices. This study investigated the effects of map size and interactive interface on users’ wayfinding performance and preference when using mobile devices. Two type...
Applied Research on the Design of Signage and Wayfinding System of Historic Blocks from the Perspective of Urban Culture
With the continuous improvement of spiritual and cultural needs, the main reason why people are keen on traveling is that they want to learn about the cultural deposits of the scenic spots. Under this context, this paper takes the signage and wayfinding System of historical blocks as the research ob...

Metro signage and attention policy
This paper studies the Parisian wayfinding system as an ordering apparatus that involves riders in a specific kind of service coproduction. Based on an analysis of internal documents and on in-depth interviews made within the transportation carrier, it shows that the wayfinding system designers anti...
Evaluation of the Effective Cognition Area (ECA) of Signage Systems with Backlighting under Smoke Conditions
Signage systems are visual information systems that indicate the direction, allow for identification, and show safety information and regulations to occupants via graphics or text during emergencies. Wayfinding is difficult in large and complex buildings, such as large shopping malls. Occupants can...
This chapter describes the results of a series of pedestrian observation studies carried out in Norwich, Rouen and Koblenz as part of the Spatial Metro project. The goal of these studies was to observe pedestrian behaviour and to investigate pedestrian movement and experience in the city centres. Th...
A virtual logbook for the documentation of a continuously changing archaeological site: the San Clemente site in Albenga (Italy)
Simulation-Based Evaluation of Ease of Wayfinding Using Digital Human and As-Is Environment Models
As recommended by the international standards, ISO 21542, ease of wayfinding must be ensured by installing signage at all key decision points on walkways such as forks because signage greatly influences the way in which people unfamiliar with an environment navigate through it. Therefore, we aimed t...

Flood–pedestrian simulator for modelling human response dynamics during flood-induced evacuation: Hillsborough stadium case study
The flood–pedestrian simulator uses a parallel approach to couple a hydrodynamic model to a pedestrian model in a single agent-based modelling (ABM) framework on graphics processing units (GPU), allowing dynamic exchange and processing of multiple-agent information across the two models. The simulat...
Exploring the Planning and Configuration of the Hospital Wayfinding System by Space Syntax: A Case Study of Cheng Ching Hospital, Chung Kang Branch in Taiwan
With regard to the outpatient areas of a hospital, the smoothness of the route is now taken into consideration in the process of configuring the wayfinding system. As patients often spend time on ineffective wayfinding processes, and there is limited manpower at hospitals and a lack of clarity in th...
Flexible and Habitual Mechanisms of Human Navigation, 2016-2019
The project concerns both the psychological and neural mechanisms involved in flexible and habitual forms of spatial learning. Traditionally it has been thought that flexible navigation is based upon a map-like representation of a person’s environment – a cognitive map - and that this representation...
