Abstract

We adopt a perspective of characterizing movement patterns on the basis of conceptual primitives that we call movement choremes: MC. This theory is an extension of our existing work on wayfinding choremes that specifically addressed movement patterns important for wayfinding and route directions. Just like in our previous work the goal is to develop a formal language that allows for characterizing the movement of individual agents and entities from a cognitively unifying perspective. By this we mean that while our main work concentrates on the conceptual level of movement patterns, the framework is intended to incorporate externalizations such as natural language and graphics (sketches) and also formal theories of qualitative movement and spatial relation characterizations. We discuss our approach in relation to existing frameworks such as RCC and the 9-intersection formalism to ground the potential of a formal-spatial language approach.
