Instead of the more traditional technique of sketching mental maps, Gould and White survey people about the desirability of locations and use a statistical technique to translate that into contour maps.

Instead of the more traditional technique of sketching mental maps, Gould and White survey people about the desirability of locations and use a statistical technique to translate that into contour maps. There are good examples of this approach applied to the United States, the UK, Sweden, Tanzania, Nigeria, and more. This approach appears to be much faster than collecting and tagging the sketches that would be collected through an approach like Lynch's.

Gould, Peter, 1932-; White, Rodney, 1943-. Mental maps is a study of the 'geography of perception': of the mental images we form of places, which are inevitably shaped by a selective channeling of information. The mental images we construct are crucial in deciding where to live, in the siting of factories and new towns, in our choice of holidays and in our attitude to other people. Geographers are now trying to measure 'mental maps', to discover how they are formed and how they differ.

Behavioral geography draws from early behaviorist works such as Tolman's concepts of "cognitive maps". More cognitively oriented, behavioral geographers focus on the cognitive processes underlying spatial reasoning, decision making, and behavior. The cognitive processes include environmental perception and cognition, wayfinding, the construction of cognitive maps, place attachment, the development of attitudes about space and place, decisions and behavior based on imperfect knowledge of one's environs, and numerous other topics.
