Description :
The mapping abilities of four-year-old children in York, Durban, Tehran, Mexico City and Evanston are investigated, using a methodology involving air-photo identification and simulated navigation on an air photo. The results show that essential mapping abilities are well developed by the age of four in these cultures and emerge without training.
