This study aimed to increase understanding of sense of place by investigating how spatial navigation and place imageability may associate with it in urban neighborhoods. Questionnaires, protocol analysis, and cognitive sketch maps were used to examine these connections. Participants used more egocentric and allocentric strategies during cognitive map navigation when sense of place was stronger. Cognitive sketch maps revealed that experiencing a strong level of sense of place is associated with recalling more of its physical features, especially paths and landmarks. When sense of place is strong, individuals find it simpler to recall and select memorable places in their cognitive maps and to describe them verbally to others. Social scientists and urban planners may benefit from these results when they respond to human spatial needs while attempting to facilitate residents' sense of attachment to, identity toward, and compatibility with city spaces.
