Abstract

Space-geometric measures are proposed to explain the location of fixations during wayfinding. Results from an eye tracking study based on real world stimuli are expanded to include findings based on the location of fixations. The gaze bias shows that attention is paid specifically to structural elements in the built environment. Three space geometric measures are proposed: sky area, floor area and longest line of sight. Together with the finding that participants choose the more connected street, a relationship is proposed between the individual cognitive processes that occur during wayfinding and relative street connectivity measured through space syntactic techniques.
