In recent years, advances in technology have allowed for a drastic increase in the accuracy of positioning systems. Wireless routers and terminals within manmade structures are capable of acting as remote sensing bases for indoor environments. Thus, the scale of guided navigation and assisted wayfinding has increased from vehicular global positioning systems to personal indoor positioning systems. This phenomenon has led to an increased reliance on technology for even the simplest instances of finding one’s way through space. This poster will utilize current events to display the increasing scale of guided navigation, as well as analyze and interpret the present research on spatial cognitive ability in those that are exposed to this technology.
