Abstract

The spatial decisions pedestrians make as they execute a task, explore a novel environment or re-enact daily habits in familiar environments engage complex thinking processes. A continuous stream of information is available to the perambulating individual that may combine with the plans and expectations that individual pedestrians have. The dynamic and experiential aspects of this thinking, as well as the overall methodological approach to such research are the focus of this chapter.
