A dense paper that tackles many important themes for a subjective collective cartography: data collection from subjective perception of space, the comparison of subjective datasets, how to map them, which protocols to use, etc.
"In order to clearly understand the cognitive representations of the urban space, this paper presents an approach in three steps : identification, which highlights the importance of a place ; its location more or less exact which indicates the level of the individuals’spatial knowledge, and the description which specifies the significant attributes of these places for the interviewed individuals. In order to obtain comparable maps, a precise protocol is proposed for each step."
