Abstract
An individual's perception of structure in space is a crucial aspect of navigation. Reports sample results from an ongoing series of studies into how people learn to conceptualize the shape of information. 48 subjects from students and faculty at Indiana University, USA, ranging from novice to expert readers of academic journal literature in cognitive science participated. Results show that ability to sense where one is in information space, is a defining characteristic of expert information users, and that novice or inexperienced users are likely to need help acquiring this sense of location
