Abstract

Route instructions used in wayfinding studies are usually taken to be perfect, but in real life we often receive erroneous or ambiguous instructions. The present study investigates wayfinding behavior under such inconsistent instructions in a virtual reality setting. We find that women are more accurate than men, and that wayfinders seem to be more affected by incorrect landmark information than incorrect turn information.
