In a wide world of wayfinding, we’re guiding people
“Wayfinding and orientation form integral parts of people’s daily lives. We have to find our way through cities, through buildings, along streets and highways, using public transportation etc.. Many times the environment to be navigated is unfamiliar: People are there for the first time and to find a goal without a previously acquired mental map. They depend on external information or knowledge in the world. Such knowledge resides in the environment and is communicated through signs, guidance systems and architectural clues.”
