Abstract

The use of qualitative research techniques in a largely quantitative cartographic domain is opening up myriad ways to explore users’ engagements with technologies of navigation. This study draws on young UK-based students’ real words and life experiences as they engage with Satellite Navigation and other wayfinding technologies during first-time visits to new places to reflect on the nature of the changing relationships between self, navigational object, space and place.
