Abstract

The new access to cartographic tools (beyond specialist uses) produces new collective shared configurations and new, further mental individual and collective representations. With several years’ experiments of interactions between participants in remote cities, the aim of the research presented here is a better understanding of entanglements between instrumental, shared and mental maps. More specifically the question is to know how new instrumental uses renew shared mental representations of urban spaces. How are mental maps constructed in situations of interaction with connected and dynamic uses? Consecutively, how are they developing when shared? The aim is to understand new forms of entanglements between egocentric, allocentric and distributed spaces in the mobile perception of urban space.
