Abstract

This note represents a mind dump of my thoughts on this topic as at mid April 1992, it does not purport to be a finished paper and leaves several issues unanswered. I was stimulated to put my thoughts on paper after reading the first draft of Nicholas Gotts' digest of his DPhil Thesis (Gotts, 1992). I was particularly keen to set down my thoughts on strategic planning and tactical adjustment as elements of the route choice process and to hrther develop the theme of different forms of mental maps since this is a topic in which I first dabbled within my own, undergraduate, dissertation. The theme of the note was intended to be: what implications does the way in which a driver stores information about the road system have for the design, content impact of route guidance and information systems? - but, as is often the case with mind dumps, the original theme spawned a variety of sub issues.
