The purpose of this research is to identify and analyze the mapping strategies of individuals by videotaping participants during a cognitive mapping test and by conducting follow-up interviews. Analyzing map-drawing processes using videotapes provided more information than did the analysis of finished paper maps. For example, even though finished maps look similar, they are often constructed by individuals using different strategies and processes. This research identified three map-drawing strategies, hierarchical, regional, and mixed.
