Understanding wayfinding: A Bayesian network approach

Farr, Anna C. (2016) Understanding wayfinding: A Bayesian network approach. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.


This research used statistical modelling to investigate the factors that contribute to how we find our way in transportation hubs, in particular, airports. Using Bayesian Networks, the researcher built a model that incorporated both the human and environmental factors required for effective wayfinding. This research has advanced the literature on how expert opinions can be combined in as well as contributing to improvement of the understanding of wayfinding in transportation hubs.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
