    Bird's eye views are very disorienting. I don't understand the appeal of Google Maps because of this.

    I mean. I don't usually look at places from above. I'm not a bird.

The only gauge I have of how different the routes are are the kinds of road, speed limits, and amount of time each one takes.


    I often think in words but I can't understand or keep track of linear verbal directions

    I often can't read maps because though I think of the places visually I'm thinking of them at a human-eye view instead of a birds-eye view, with lots of details that I know are important to recognizing the intersection, like how many lanes there are and how many turn in each direction.

    I remember once going to an old maps exhibit at a museum where there were pictures of the road and intersections and under the pictures it said 'turn left here.' That would be the most useful map to me.

    That's closer to what I do as well. When I try to get directions, I end up virtually walking the route using Google street view to get an idea of what the place looks like, rather than just a map. I can't really read just a straight map without using landmarks, and even then I often end up taking a really inefficient (if not incorrect) route.

    I recently tried to walk somewhere I didn't know how to get to, and I ended up asking six or seven people for directions, and finally ended up calling the place I was headed when I was within a certain distance of it but couldn't find it anywhere, and they had to walk me through the remaining landmarks over the phone, stuff like "do you see a blue mailbox?". I'm known in that area as "the person with the lousy sense of direction" now.

    If somebody was giving me directions just over a phone I could probably find the place. I just can't take long directions all at once.

    Maps are difficult because street signs and addresses and things usually used to find a road or place are usually tiny and difficult to see. If someone says it's building #209 I'm going to have a lot more difficulty finding it than someone saying it's got a big yellow sign out front. Because what is my eye naturally drawn to? The big yellow sign, not the tiny white numbers on the corner of the building.

    I mean. I have better direction than most people in my family. I remember how I entered the building and therefore know where to exit, and I rarely ever lose the car. It's just that it's difficult to translate "it's to the east on this map" to "if I go this way at this intersection, it will get me to this other intersection that's closer to where I need to be."

    I don't know if it's so clear-cut, Edge. I suck at techincal drawing, because I'm not clean with the pen/pencil and not good with the precise details, but I'm great at maps, better than everybody I know. However, I hate visually-oriented school learning - when learning is structured it's always better for me to have words; OTOH "real world" stuff is much better when visually-presented (and I also believe school is completely useless)...most people are just mixtures.

    I typically look at a map, remember a few parallels and then go. I rarely have to look at the map for a check up after that. I also have a 3D map in my head of most places I often go. My learning processes are all over the map...

    I always come out very female minded but I've got ring fingers very much longer than my index fingers, on my left hand my ring finger is almost on par with my middle finger. (assuming this is what is meant by the hand thing, I am too lazy to read the thread right now)

    I can read a map if I concentrate really hard but I can't read one in a moving car.
