  • In emergency events, first responders often have to build an accurate spatial working memory of unfamiliar spaces in a short time period. This study investigates the impact of information format on first responders’ short-term spatial memory of large-scale spaces via a human-subject experiment (n=63). A virtual model was created to simulate a real building on Texas A&M University campus. A total of 28 building components were modified in the virtual model. Participants were asked to review the… CONTINUE READING
