This study proposes a user model of navigation in a Virtual Environment (VE), based on investigating the differences in movement patterns. Two methodologies enable accessing navigational rules and strategies employed by different groups of users: high versus low spatial users. These captured rules are summarised and hierarchically organised in a coherent structure which constitutes a basis for an efficient model of navigation. Implications of this model for designing navigable VEs are discussed.
