Acquired Map-Like Mental Constructs
Atempts to identify mental maps with the help of maps drawn from memory have unfortunately been quite disappointing. Based on the fndings of Bety Edwards (1975/2012) and others, it can be concluded that in most cases these tests do not
externalize specifc map details, which have been intentionally commited to memory. Instead, they provide us with an inkling of the individual's map-like mental constructs, which he or she has learned routinely for the purpose of recognition.
