Inferencing from spatial information

Gattis, Merideth Leigh 2005. Inferencing from spatial information. Spatial Cognition & Computation 5 (2-3) , pp. 119-137. 10.1080/13875868.2005.9683800

Making inferences on the basis of spatial information, such as taking shortcuts, and reasoning with graphs and diagrams, is a commonality between very different tasks of spatial cognition. This paper discusses three processes of reasoning about space: integrating pairwise relations, integrating different spatial relations from different information types, and aligning relational structures. The final section of the paper poses the question whether these three processes are common to both small-scale and large-scale spatial reasoning, and if so, how those commonalities might inform our theories of cognitive architecture.
