Handbook of Behavioral and Cognitive Geography

Edited by Daniel R. Montello, Department of Geography, University of California, Santa Barbara, US

This comprehensive Handbook summarizes existing work and presents new concepts and empirical results from leading scholars in the multidisciplinary field of behavioral and cognitive geography, the study of the human mind, and activity in and concerning space, place, and environment. It provides the broadest and most inclusive coverage of the field so far, including work relevant to human geography, cartography, and geographic information science.

‘This book is an extremely timely and welcome synthesis of the state of knowledge in behavioral and cognitive geography. It comes at a time of rapidly growing interest, stimulated at least in part by the growth of wayfinding apps and other location-based services, and the challenge of designing useful and effective human interfaces to what is in reality highly complex technology.’
– Michael F. Goodchild, University of California, Santa Barbara​, US
