In this paper we examine the nature of the early cognitive map – the beginnings of a cognitive map formed from one’s early impressions of the environment one is in. Two distinct paradigms have emerged from our studies of what information is initially identified in a cognitive map. The first, which we term a space-based approach, emphasises making explicit(More)
We present a novel split and merge based method for dividing a given metric map into distinct regions, thus effectively creating a topological map on top of a metric one. The initial metric map is obtained from range data that are converted to a geometric map consisting of linear approximations of the indoor environment. The splitting is done using an(More)
