Abstract

(from the chapter) focuses exclusively on a particular type of decision making and action, namely spatial choice behavior [in physical environments] / the problem context is sketched in more depth / a characteristic of research on spatial choice is the development of mathematical-statistical models for predicting choice behavior / outlines a general conceptual framework for the different modeling approaches, which are then briefly explained / a separate section is then devoted to a discussion of the role of the physical environment in spatial choice behavior / concludes with a discussion of a number of problems research on spatial choice faces / it is contended that the solution to some of these problems may benefit from a broader psychological approach similar to the one taken in environmental psychology (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2002 APA, all rights reserved)
