Binding affordances and GIS in hybrid places

Taming the spaces

An Affordance-Based Model of Place in GIS. This paper presents a methodology to model places with affordances. Modeling places with affordances integrates cognitive and engineering aspects, therefore leading to a knowledge-representation that comes closer to the user. The integration of affordance-based models of places into future GIS will lead to a better communication between users and systems. Designing with Affordances in Mind.
