Abstract

This article presents research designed to investigate map use. Specifically, we interrogate the long-held assumption that people use maps for specific purposes and in specific ways and those purposes and ways differ from other types of graphics. The results reveal that behaviorally, mental rotation performance of the different stimuli type is statistically consistent within categorical type and statistically different among categorical types. Further, the brain activation results reveal that participants are using the maps differently than they are using the geometric objects
