Abstract

This paper complements landmark research with an approach to formalize the structural salience of objects along routes. The aim is to automatically integrate salient objects - landmarks - into route directions. To this end, two directions of research are combined: the formalization of salience of objects and the conceptualization of wayfinding actions. We approach structural salience with some taxonomic considerations of point-like objects with respect to their positions along a route and detail the effects of different positions on the conceptualization process. The results are used to extend a formal language of route knowledge, the wayfinding choreme theory. This research contributes to a cognitive foundation for next generation navigation support and to the aim of formalizing gcosemantics.
