RAMOS, Ana Paula Marques; DECANINI, Mônica Modesta Santos; PUGLIESI, Edmur Azevedo  e  TACHIBANA, Vilma Mayumi. The gender effect on visual demand for maps at different scales in route guidance and navigation system. Bol. Ciênc. Geod. [online]. 2015, vol.21, n.1, pp.74-92. ISSN 1982-2170.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1982-21702015000100006.

This work investigates the gender effect on visual demand of drivers for dynamic maps at different cartographic scales presented In-Vehicle Route Guidance and Navigation System (RGNS). A group of 52 subjects (26 males and 26 females) took part in an experiment performed in a low-cost driving simulator. the driver's task consisted of navigating in an unknown route using a RGNS prototype which presents maps at two different cartographic scales. This paper replicates the known phenomenon of significant relationships between gender and performance at visual-spatial tasks issue. Our results show that drivers of different genders present distinct levels of visual demand both due to the cartographic scales and maneuver complexity variation. These discussed results are based upon individual differences in terms of spatial ability and spatial anxiety.
