INTRODUCTION As important as navigation is to human performance in virtual worlds, support for effective navigation is often overlooked in the design process. This document reports an experiment intended to show that real-world wayfinding and environmental design principles are effective in designing virtual worlds which support skilled wayfinding behavior. The design principles are adapted from both the cognitive psychology literature and urban and architectural design methodologies. There are… CONTINUE READING
