Abstract

Concept mapping may be considered as the result of complex processes, which leads to the production of a concept map. Could it not be also used as a tool to explain mental representations, occurring during an anthropological field study? In an experiment conducted in Bordeaux the inhabitants were surveyed on the major transformation of their urban environment using concept mapping. It was also used as a means of interaction. For this particular purpose, concept mapping tools could be improved with new functionalities such as map superposition, layer-based readability ensuring that text does not move while the background is rotated, focusing and foregrounding technology.
