Orientation in space is fundamental for all humans and most other animals. Accomplishing goals often requires moving through environmental spaces such as forests, houses, or cities. Several mechanisms were evolved in order to solve these orientation problems, including spatial updating, route navigation, and reorientation by landmarks and geometry. Human orientation capabilities build upon these and other fundamental mechanisms. Compared to nonŠ\human animals, humans demonstrate a greater flexibility during orientation tasks. They are able to apply various strategies to fulfil one orientation goal, such as navigating to a known location. In this work, we examined which orientation strategies human navigators apply and how efficient these strategies are. We focused on memory strategies for encoding spatial knowledge and on planning strategies especially during wayfinding.
